BOS­TON» Red Sox pitcher David Price is go­ing back on the 10-day dis­abled list with in­flam­ma­tion in his left el­bow.

The in­flam­ma­tion is in the same el­bow that Price strained dur­ing spring train­ing and caused him to be­gin the reg­u­lar sea­son on the dis­abled list. The Red Sox re­called Robby Scott from Triple-A Paw­tucket to fill Price’s spot on the 25-man ros­ter.

Price, who is in the sec­ond sea­son of a $217 mil­lion, seven-year con­tract, had made 11 starts since re­turn­ing from his ini­tial DL stint on May 29. He is 5-3 with a 3.82 ERA.
