The Boston Red Sox will get some reinforcements back in a big way after the weekend.

David Price, who’s been on the injured list with elbow tendinitis since May 6, has been trending in the right direction since being sidelined. Manager Alex Cora hinted he may return this weekend against the Houston Astros, but will give him a little extra rest.

The southpaw didn’t need a rehab stint and only will end up missing two starts.

Price was on a roll before heading to the IL, amassing a 2.64 ERA over his last four starts. He’s 1-3 on the season with a 3.75 ERA and 1.14 WHIP.
