David Price will make his return to the mound Friday after missing one start with a wrist contusion.
The Boston Red Sox left-hander took a comebacker off his throwing arm on Aug. 29 against the Miami Marlins and exited the game after just two innings. But X-rays were negative and he’s ready to return, which is good news for Boston.
Before getting injured, Price had been stellar in his previous seven starts, posting a 5-0 record with a 1.50 ERA. He’ll look to pick up where he left off Friday night against the American League West-leading Houston Astros.
The Red Sox’s pitching matchup is pretty solid for the series, with Eduardo Rodriguez and Rick Porcello following the southpaw.
