X-rays on Red Sox starter David Price's wrist came back negative, after he exited Wednesday's game against the Marlins due to a left wrist contusion, the team announced.

The Red Sox said further tests on Price's wrist would be done as needed.

Price took a line drive off his wrist in the third inning. He stayed in the game to record the final out before heading straight to the Red Sox's clubhouse.

Hector Velazquez replaced Price, who allowed three runs on five hits in his three innings in the Red Sox's 14-6 victory over the Marlins.

Price has been red-hot, going 6-0 since the All-Star break with a 1.09 ERA. He's only allowed 5 earned runs through 41 1/3 innings.

The Red Sox currently lead the AL East by 7 1/2 games over the Yankees.
