Red Sox left-hander David Price will undergo minor surgery to have a cyst removed from his left wrist Thursday, manager Alex Cora said before Sunday’s game.
Price will fly back to Boston on Monday and meet with a specialist before the surgery. The lefty has pitched just two innings since the TFCC (triangular fibrocartilage complex) cyst was discovered during an MRI in early August after he felt tightness in the area.
Price originally went on the injured list Aug. 8 and was shut down for three weeks before returning for a two-inning start in Anaheim on Sept. 2. He felt tightness in the days after that outing and was held out of the rotation until the Sox made the decision to shut him down for the season last week.
Having the procedure to remove the cyst will allow Price to get an early start on his offseason work.
