David Price dominating in new bullpen role

David Price dominating in new bullpen role

David Price may suddenly be the highest-paid reliever in MLB history, but at least he is well on his way to perfecting his new craft.

Since returning from the disabled list earlier this month, Price has made three appearances out of the bullpen for the Boston Red Sox. In those three outings, he has pitched a total of six innings and allowed just three hits and zero earned runs. The left-hander has walked just one batter and struck out nine.

Price, who previously dealt with elbow soreness, was consistently throwing fastballs in the high-90s on Wednesday night. He did not allow a run in 1 1/3 very important innings of a game where starting pitcher Rick Porcello was shelled and the Red Sox suddenly had the New York Yankees breathing down their necks for the AL East title.

The three appearances hes made for us out of the bullpen, theyve been extremely consistent and powerful, manager John Farrell said Wednesday, via Ian Browne of MLB.com. A lot of strikes. Hes commanding the baseball extremely well. Thats really an encouraging sign and you look at the velocity tonight, thats the best its been in the three outings. Hopefully hes getting adapted a little more to the role and we can hopefully see some of the performances be similar to tonight going forward.

Thanks in part to Price, the Red Sox beat the Toronto Blue Jays 10-7 and hold a three-game lead over the Yankees with four left to play.
