2017 FANTASY BASEBALL NEWS: RED SOX ACTIVATE DAVID PRICE (ELBOW) MONDAY

The Boston Red Sox activated SP David Price on Monday; allowing him to make his 2017 debut later in the day versus the Chicago White Sox.  Price has been on the DL for the entire month of April and almost all of May while recovering from an elbow/forearm scare early in spring training and he gave up six runs in 5.2 innings during his minor league rehab stint.

Analysis:  Well let's see what we have here.  Price is a walking red flag given the elbow scare and his drop in velocity which began last season and led to him being more hittable than ever.  I am not optimistic here as I think all those early years of heavy usage have stolen some pop from Price's stuff but he still has the ability to miss a lot of bats and win games on a good Red Sox team.  Proceed with caution.
