Roberts did not elaborate on Price’s condition, saying: “It’s an arm issue and he just felt it. It’s nothing that’s going to be a big deal. It’s like making sure we don’t let it turn into one.” If it’s an IL, it would be a short-term deal. “
Price, 36, who opted out of the coronavirus-shortened 2020 season, has one year left on a seven-year, $ 217 million deal that he originally signed with the Boston Red Sox in December 2015.
