Did David Price's video game obsession cause carpal tunnel syndrome?

He missed his scheduled start against the New York Yankees this week, though he'll be out there Saturday.

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". "From what I know, David has been playing video games his whole life", Cora said.


The last time a video game became a bona fide mainstream sensation, Pokemon GO had people walking into traffic. He also said thoracic outlet syndrome was ruled out. "I promise you that". Plus, after a series of showdowns with the Boston baseball media last season, Price - for better or worse - seems unlikely to get the benefit of the doubt from many of those covering the team.

Price addressed the buzz saying he "won't be playing at the field". He's in the third year of his seven-year, $217 million contract with the Red Sox.


Price threw about 40 pitches before Thursday night's game at Yankee Stadium.

For now, Price looks to have possibly avoided a long-term injury. 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. So, there's a lot of teams playing Fortnite, too. "Doing stuff like that, make sure my wrist stays locked back and doesn't get bent up under me".
