Although it was a Spring Training game, David Price made his debut as a member of the Boston Red Sox on Thursday afternoon.

The thirty-year-old left hander had a bit of a shaky outing in his first start at Jet Blue Park in Fort Myers, Florida but it’s what he does on the mound in a few weeks that the Boston Red Sox will really be concerned about.

His start began with a leadoff double by the Twins’ Brian Dozier on the first pitch of the game. In three innings of work he allowed four hits and two homers; walking one and struck out three on fifty-0ne pitches.

David Price was one of the biggest free agent signings of the offseason in December  as he and the Red Sox  agreed to a seven year deal worth $217 million.

The Cy Young Award Winner began the 2015 season with the Detroit Tigers where he was 9-4 with a 2.53 ERA in twenty-one starts and was then traded to the Dunedin Blue Jays just before the trade deadline. With the Jays he went 9-1 with a 2.30 ERA in eleven starts.
