The Boston Red Sox put left-hander David Price on the 10-day injured list Thursday with a cyst on his left wrist.

An MRI revealed that Price had a triangular fibrocartilage complex cyst, which was treated with a cortisone shot.

Price, 33, is 7-5 with a 4.36 ERA this season. He was pounded in his last outing, which was against the New York Yankees on Sunday, going only 2 innings and taking the loss.

The move to the IL was retroactive to Monday.

Right-hander Hector Velázquez was recalled from Triple-A Pawtucket to take Price's spot on the roster.
