Boston Red Sox starting pitcher David Price will be back on the mound for the big-league team against the Chicago White Sox Monday, according to ESPN’s Scott Lauber.
The announcement comes from manager John Farrell following a rough outing by Price during a Triple-A rehab assignment in Pawtucket, Rhode Island. The five-time All-Star and former Cy Young Award winner gave up six runs on seven hits over 3 2/3 innings Tuesday night.
David Price on what he gained from rehab starts: "A lot of pitches in a short amount of time. I think that's more a test to being healthy"

He landed on the disabled list with soreness and inflammation in his left elbow and forearm, and it seems he’s finally ready to make his return.
Price hosts a career 3.99 ERA and has yet to make his major league debut this season.
