If not, Dave Dombrowski will need to find the answer via the trade market.
Kimbrel entered the game in the eighth inning to replace Matt Barnes and allowed four runners to score, including two runs charged to Barnes.
Trailing 5-4 in the seventh, the Red Sox needed a lift. Still, not good enough.
Manager Alex Cora said, "no, no, no" if he believed that there was a link between Price's video gaming practices and this injury.

Just too many eighth-inning walks. And the Yankees might have more offensive issues than the Red Sox.
But he has hit 97 miles per hour and shown "phenomenal" secondary pitches.
The leverage was never going to be higher than it was in that moment. Sabathia made four starts against the team in 2017, compiling a spotless 4-0 record in 2017, posting a ideal 4-0 record with a 1.04 ERA and 18 strikeouts. Price and several of his teammates are hardcore fans of the game, often banding together on road trips to compete in the multiplayer game. During the playoffs, he was relegated to a role in the bullpen, where the $30m a year southpaw thrived in 6.2 innings without yielding a single run.
He posted a 5.28 ERA on the road past year while holding the opposition to a.215 batting average. Rodriguez is 3-0 with a 5.29 ERA and 39 strikeouts. Walker doubled on a 2-2 pitch, a 96.2 miles per hour four-seamer. Miguel Andujar's groundout to second moved Walker to third.
Cora has said there isn't, and perhaps there truly isn't any correlation, but now it seems as if Price's pitching arm has become as fragile as his ego, if not more so.

"At this point, I don't think any of us are thinking about the 7½-game lead, " Kimbrel said. "Made some good pitches to get back in the count with Walker. I got the fastballs and drove one to left center".
Seattle Mariners pitcher James Paxton delivered the best start of his career against the Toronto Blue Jays. J.D. Martinez got a hit off Chapman and ran into the closer trying to round first base. So in that situation, the pitches to him were kind of created to (be) executed in that fashion. Imagine once Stanton and Gary Sánchez get going a little better at the plate.
