He was forced from a game April 11 with the same symptoms after allowing four runs in the first inning - the shortest start of his career.

He threw a bullpen session Thursday and said it was a bit hard to spin breaking balls at first, but got easier as he went along. He'll throw at Yankee Stadium, and then the team will re-evaluate his status.

"I'll be ready to pitch on Saturday", Price said.

Still, Price is off to a disappointing start to the third season of his massive seven-year, $217 million contract with the Red Sox, and the knives always come out for players perceived to be overpaid. The 2012 AL Cy Young Award victor signed a $217 million, seven-year contract with the Red Sox in December 2015 but has been slowed by injuries the past two years.

Injuries are not uncommon in the world of Major League Baseball, muscle strains, knee injuries, getting wanged by an errant ball. It's caused by repeated motions, such as typing, and is more common among esports athletes.

David Price said Thursday that he's been playing video games since 1997 and doesn't believe that his hobby is the cause of his recently-diagnosed carpal tunnel syndrome. Price's case has invited speculation that it could have been caused by excessively playing video games.

Price said video games were not the cause for his carpal tunnel, but if he needs to stop playing alltogether he will. That's all I know. So, there's a lot of teams playing Fortnite, too.

"When he comes here tomorrow, we'll talk about it", Cora said.

The carpal tunnel was not to blame for his recent poor starts, he said.

"We'll see what works for him", Cora said.

But even Smith-Schuster knows when to put down the controller (at least we think he does).
