David Price Doesn't Think Playing Video Games Caused Carpal Tunnel Syndrome

David Price Doesn't Think Playing Video Games Caused Carpal Tunnel Syndrome”

Earlier this week, Boston Red Sox left-hander David Price had to be scratched from his scheduled start due to numbness in his fingers.

WEEI actually asked Price's manager, Alex Cora, if it could have been Fortnite that led to his injury.

Putting down the iPad for a while might help Price recover - there's no way video games are good for carpal-tunnel syndrome - but it seems silly to blame an innocent hobby for a professional hurdle in the absence of any real evidence. He returned to Boston for tests that showed a minor case of carpal tunnel syndrome, which is good news.

David Price was scheduled to pitch Wednesday night in NY, but he was scratched and went back to Boston on Monday to get testing done on his fingers after feeling some discomfort following throwing a bullpen in Texas on Sunday. "But day games or off days, we can put some time in". We'll talk with Brad [Pearson, trainer] and see where we're at. He also made it clear that, while his injury had nothing to do with Fortnite, he's going to cut out playing at the ballpark because it's become such a distraction. If Price actually misses time because he played too much Fortnite, that's both a sign of the times and a slightly more sinister twist on how massively popular the game is right now. If he ends up by throwing a bullpen and all goes well, he could potentially start Saturday in Toronto.
