David Price went to bat for his teammate Tuesday.
While many probably expected Price to be in the American League Cy Young discussion this year, a slow start threatened to derail the left-hander’s first season in Boston. That doesn’t mean a Red Sox pitcher won’t bring home the hardware, though, as Rick Porcello is a serious contender for the award.
Price wants the world to know.
Porcello tossed a complete game Monday as the Red Sox defeated the Baltimore Orioles 5-2. The right-hander now is 21-4 with a 3.08 ERA over 210 2/2 innings in 31 starts, putting him right in the thick of the AL Cy Young discussion only one year removed from a disappointing 2015 season.
