BOSTON — David Price, on the disabled list with elbow problems for the second time this season, hasn’t thrown since Tuesday and won’t throw again anytime soon, Boston Red Sox Manager John Farrell said Friday.

Price has been playing catch on a daily basis but stopped throwing on Wednesday, when he began feeling some “stiffness,” according to Farrell.

Farrell said he did not know when Price would pitch next, but he would stop throwing for the time being.

With just 40 games left in the regular season, it’s going to be difficult for Price to make a comeback. It’s been almost a month since he’s pitched and he still hasn’t thrown off a mound.

A day after John Henry suggested his team should lead the process to rename Yawkey Way, Pumpsie Green stood behind the owner.

In a statement to The Providence Journal, Green, the first African-American player in Red Sox history said he would support changing the name and that “naming the street after David Ortiz is a very good choice.”

Green joined the Red Sox in 1959, 12 years after Jackie Robinson broke the color barrier.

MLB UMPIRES wore white wristbands during games Saturday, protesting “abusive player behavior” after Detroit second baseman Ian Kinsler was fined but not suspended for his recent verbal tirade against ump Angel Hernandez.

The World Umpires Association announced the action, saying the union strongly objected to the response by the commissioner’s office. Kinsler said this week that Hernandez was a bad umpire and “just needs to go away.”

DODGERS: The team acquired outfielder Curtis Granderson and cash from the New York Mets for a player to be named later or cash in a deal completed early Saturday morning.

The 36-year-old Granderson is hitting .228 with 19 home runs and 52 RBI this year.

Yu Darvish was placed on the 10-day DL after just three starts with his new team.

The team said Darvish has lower back tightness, which he first noticed after a recent start in Arizona and mentioned again after making his Dodger Stadium debut last Wednesday.

PADRES: San Diego demoted one of its top young players, right fielder Hunter Renfroe, to Triple-A El Paso on Saturday.

Manager Andy Green said the Padres want Renfroe to work on plate discipline and getting on base more consistently.
