Red Sox pitcher David Price left his start on Wednesday early after taking a line drive off of his left wrist. The 103 MPH rocket came pretty close to being a headshot.
Price was able to avoid that by getting his arm up. He was able to cover first base to complete the play and get the out before leaving the game.
X-rays on his wrist came back negative and his injury is being called a left wrist contusion.
Left wrist contusion for David Price. To be evaluated further. 1/132

Price spoke to the media after last night’s game and said he thinks he’ll be alright. Let’s hope he can still play Fortnite. We would hate for his skills to slip.
