MLB David Price has carpal tunnel syndrome

On Thursday, the five-time All-Star and 2012 American League Cy Young Award victor told reporters: "I've always played it with my team-mates, during the offseason, at the field, at the hotel". That's what we do.

But Price's absence has led to speculation about what exactly caused his carpal tunnel syndrome, with some suggesting that it was due to his love of video games, specifically the new 100-person free-for-all "Fortnite". But Cora would not rule out the lefty needing a stint on the 10-day disabled list before returning to the Red Sox rotation. He has not pitched since May 3.

Price has a 5.11 ERA and is 2-4 in seven starts during his third season with Boston. He returned to Boston on Tuesday for tests after experiencing numbness in his pitching hand during a bullpen session and was diagnosed with carpal tunnel. Could a simple video game really be the cause of all this drama?

According to Silverman, Price got his first Xbox when he was 12 years old. "I've always played video games".

Price is expected to re-join the team in NY on Thursday for a bullpen session.

Alex Cora said he doesn't think the pitcher's video game habit brought on the issue. He will be treated with a procedure similar to acupuncture and hopes to avoid surgery.

The rumors began thanks to Price's known interest in the game - earlier in the year, he spoke with the Associated Press about the prominence of the game in the clubhouse.
