David Price left his start against the Marlins Wednesday after he took a 102-mph line drive off the bat of Austin Dean to his wrist.

Price went into the clubhouse immediately after the third inning was over and Boston did not initially warm up a reliever to take his spot. However, after a few minutes, and a Mookie Betts home run which cut the Marlins’ lead to 3-2, the Red Sox started warming up Hector Velazquez to take Price’s spot.

Velazquez then took the mound to start to the top of the fourth inning as Price was out of the game.

Boston announced Price had a wrist contusion. X-rays were negative, and according to the club, further testing will be done as necessary.
