BOSTON — David Price, who felt tightness in his left wrist while throwing a bullpen Wednesday, was scheduled to throw on flat ground Saturday here at Fenway Park. He was scratched from his start Friday.
“Obviously we’ll know a little bit more afterward,” Red Sox manager Alex Cora said.
Price spent from Aug. 8-Sept. 1 on the injured list because of a cyst on his left wrist.
The lefty is 7-5 with a 4.28 ERA, 3.62 FIP and 1.31 WHIP in 22 starts this season.
Lin gets checked out
Tzu-Wei Lin, who suffered a concussion late in Triple-A Pawtucket’s season, was at Fenway Park on Saturday to get checked out.
Cora said Lin most likely will play for Taiwan in the WBSC Premium12 tournament in November.
“So we’ve just got to make sure he’s OK,” Cora said.
Chavis still sidelined
Michael Chavis still hasn’t participated in any baseball activities since he suffered an oblique injury Wednesday while working out in Boston.
The Red Sox initially placed the rookie on the 10-day injured list Aug. 12 because of an AC joint sprain in his left shoulder. He then was scratched from a rehab game with Pawtucket on Aug. 31 because of right-side soreness. His season might be finished.
