It looks as though the Boston Red Sox and pitcher David Price could potentially soon be parting ways.
The former Detroit Tigers pitcher was brought aboard by former Tigers GM Dave Dombrowski, and the pair helped Boston to a World Series title in 2018. But Dombrowski was let go by the Red Sox last season, and now Price could find himself leaving.
He’s owed $96 million over the next three years, and the Red Sox are looking to shed salary. According to MLB Insider Jeff Passan, the Red Sox could be pursuing a deal involving Price.
The Boston Red Sox continue to pursue ways to shed salary, and multiple teams have targeted starter David Price, sources tell ESPN. He is owed $96 million over the next three years. Red Sox could either attach player with value or potentially pay down some of Price's remaining $.

Reports have also indicated that there are “multiple teams” interested in acquiring Price.
Last season, Price went 7-5 with a 4.28 ERA and 128 strikeouts in 107.1 innings last season in 22 games while also dealing with elbow and wrist injuries.
