Boston Red Sox pitcher David Price was experiencing extreme soreness in his elbow, and the team feared that he was going to need Tommy John surgery, which would have caused Price to miss the entire 2017 season.
However, after getting a second opinion from Dr. James Andrews, they have determined that the injury isn't serious and he just needs to rest for a week or a week and a half, according to Pete Abraham of the Boston Globe.
