David Price (Carpal Tunnel Syndrome) Could Make Next Start

It was cool the day before and then that last day it was warm.

As for the treatment plan, it will involve dry needling for muscular therapy. "But I do not think that's the cause". Surgery would be worst-case scenario, which has a two-month recovery period. "I don't think it's going to go away in its entirety". There are way, way more harmful, risky and indecent things pro athletes could be doing with the time they're using to master the latest gaming sensation.

Red Sox pitcher David Price said Thursday that video games are not the cause of his carpal tunnel syndrome but stressed that he won't play the popular "Fortnite" in the team clubhouse again "to avoid the distraction it has caused".

"I'm pitching the rest of the year", he said confidently.

"I've always played it with my teammate, during the offseason, at the field, at the hotel", he said.

ICICI Bank profit halves as bad loan provisions surge
A lookout notice was issued against ICICI Bank CEO Chanda Kochhar, husband Deepak & Videocon Chief Venugopal Dhoot in April 2018. ICICI Bank CEO Chanda Kochhar sprang a surprise following the bank's board meeting on Monday.

He says of video games: "If that was the cause of the problem, it started back in 1997 when I got my first PlayStation when I was 12 years old". That is kind of my generation, that is what I do. From what I know, David has played video games his whole life.

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.

"When I was playing catch in the outfield on the flat ground, trying to throw cutters and curveballs, I didn't have much of a feel for those", Price said.

And if Red Sox fans weren't already disgusted enough with their $30 million per year "ace", the reason Price gave for his bullpen session being cut short last week probably won't help. "That's not the issue though, I promise you that".
