UNDATED (AP) — Red Sox Nation is breathing easier right now. The Red Sox say lefty David Price doesn't need surgery or an injection in his ailing pitching arm. Price felt discomfort in his left elbow and forearm on Wednesday, a day after a two-inning, 38-pitch simulated game. The Red Sox say Price saw a pair of renowned orthopedic doctors who determined he should receive rest and treatment for the next seven to 10 days before he's re-evaluated. Price went 17-9 with a 3.99 ERA in a major league-leading 35 starts for the Bosox last season, his first after signing a seven-year, $210 million contract.
