Rays' Price hurts triceps, leaves game vs Red Sox

  •  

ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. (AP) - AL Cy Young Award winner David Price has left the Tampa Bay Rays' game against the Red Sox with left triceps tightness.

Price departed with one out in the third inning in Wednesday night's game after allowing an RBI single to David Ortiz.

The left-hander walked toward the plate after delivering the pitch to Ortiz and appeared to grimace.

Tampa Bay manager Joe Maddon, a team athletic trainer and the Rays infield all joined Price on the mound after the play. Price walked off the field after a brief consultation and was replaced by Jamey Wright.

Price has struggled this season and entered Wednesday's game with a 1-3 record and a 4.78 ERA. He was charged with four runs and five hits in 2 1-3 innings against the Red Sox.
