Rays' David Price Unlikely for Next Start

Brian D. Kersey/Getty Images(ST. PETERSBURG, Fla.) -- Rays pitcher David Price left early on Wednesday night with strained left triceps in the team's 9-2 loss to the Red Sox.

Price is being evaluated by team doctors, but manager Joe Maddon said he will probably miss his next start on Monday.

"It just felt (like) tightness," Price said after the game. "It wasn't like excruciating pain, but I've never felt anything like that before. My gut feeling, I feel OK right now. I don't think it's too bad."

Price is 1-4 with a 5.24 ERA so far this season and doesn't plan on using an injury to avoid his next start.

"It's something I've got to take care of," Price said. "I can't just go out there because I'm just not putting my neck on the line. I'm part of this team. I want to be there in August and September and October, when we're playing in the playoffs."
