Red Sox ace David Price got the news he hoped to hear this time, namely that the soreness in his left elbow and forearm will subside without the need for surgery.

"They were like, 'Your elbow is extremely unique. It's found a way to kind of heal itself,'" Price told reporters Saturday, referring to his meeting this week with Drs. James Andrews and Neal ElAttrache. "I've heard that before, but not from guys that have done the surgeries they've done and looked at as many elbows as they've looked at.

"Just to hear it from those two guys, it felt good."
