With just over a month remaining in the regular season, the options are running out for Red Sox southpaw David Price.

Price, who was placed on the 10-day disabled list on July 28 because of left elbow inflammation, is starting to make progress in his rehab – the lefty threw a bullpen session Wednesday in Toronto.

Speaking on WEEI’s Dale, Holley & Keefe, Red Sox Manager John Farrell said one possible option for Price is coming back as a reliever, rather than a starter.

“At this point, you can’t rule that out,” Farrell said. “Like I said, it is just going to be dependent on his stamina, durability, all that, (and) how that continues to build here.”

Price, who took part in long toss for consecutive days last week, has been hampered by injuries throughout the 2017 season – missing the first 49 games of the year because of an elbow strain.

“It’s going to be dependent upon when David is able to get to game speed, first and foremost,” Farrell said. “Then you’re realistically looking at the calendar at what is left and how we can build him up.”

The shrinking calendar has been an ongoing issue for the Red Sox and Price, with Farrell admitting earlier this month that time is starting to run out for a potential return.

MARINERS-CARDINALS TRADE: Seattle acquired right-hander Mike Leake from St. Louis for minor league infielder Rayder Ascanio as it tries to bolster its beleaguered starting rotation during the AL wild-card race.

ORIOLES: Shortstop J.J. Hardy (wrist) will likely come off the DL “sometime between Sept. 1 and 4,” Manager Buck Showalter said.

CUBS: Shortstop Addison Russell was called back to Chicago to be examined after experiencing a setback in his recovery from a right foot injury.

The news on ace Jon Lester was more encouraging. His 50-pitch bullpen session Wednesday went well, and the Cubs expected to have the next step in his recovery from left lat tightness and shoulder fatigue mapped out by Thursday.
