The Boston Red Sox activated left-hander David Price from the 10-day disabled list, the team announced Thursday.

Price has been sidelined since July 28 with left elbow inflammation.

The 2012 American League Cy Young Award winner began the season on the disabled list with a left elbow strain before returning on May 29. He posted a 5-3 mark with a 3.82 ERA in 11 starts before making another trek to the disabled list.

Price has sparred with the media this season, including a much-publicized incident in which he lashed out at Hall of Fame pitcher and current NESN TV analyst Dennis Eckersley on the team plane June 29.

The 32-year-old Price mocked Eckersley and cursed at him multiple times during the confrontation, the Boston Globe reported.

Price has notched a 22-12 record in 46 starts since joining the Red Sox in 2016. He has a 126-68 mark with a 3.24 ERA in 264 major-league appearances with the Tampa Bay Rays, Detroit Tigers, Toronto Blue Jays and Red Sox.
