David Price’s first minor league rehab game was in a batting cage

He was wearing a minor-league uniform, but didn’t end up playing in a minor-league game.

The scheduled first rehab assignment start for David Price was derailed Sunday after the game between the Triple-A Pawtucket Red Sox and Rochester at McCoy Stadium was postponed.

Instead, Price was forced to execute another simulated game, this one in the PawSox’s indoor batting cage. It was the third sim game for the lefty, who has shown good progress in his return from an elbow injury, possessing a fastball that has sat between 93-95 mph.

The next rehab start for Price is slated to come in Buffalo for the PawSox, Friday. It is uncertain if he will make another one after that, or jump back into the Red Sox’ rotation, which would pit him against the Rangers at Fenway Park May 24.
