David Price threw a bullpen session on Monday at Fenway Park as he works his way back from an elbow injury suffered during spring training.

Since it was an off-day, reporters didn’t have the chance to approach Price about the session afterwards, so Price took to Twitter on Tuesday to say how it went and to say that’s all he would be saying on the matter.

It’s unclear the motive for the tweets, but regardless it doesn’t appear to be sending a good message.

After a terrific spring, it hasn’t been the start to the season Pablo Sandoval and the Red Sox had hoped for.

The switch-hitter is batting .213 in 13 games this season and after leaving Sunday’s game against the Orioles with a knee injury, Sandoval was placed on the 10-day disabled list with a right knee sprain on Tuesday.

After a terrific spring, it hasn’t been the start to the season Pablo Sandoval and the Red Sox had hoped for.

The switch-hitter is batting .213 in 13 games this season and after leaving Sunday’s game against the Orioles with a knee injury, Sandoval was placed on the 10-day disabled list with a right knee sprain on Tuesday.

To fill his spot on the roster, Josh Rutledge has been added to the roster after starting the year on the disabled list with a hamstring injury.

With Sandoval down, this means Marco Hernandez and Rutledge will share the starts at third base, especially with Brock Holt on the DL.

In five rehab games between Triple-A Pawtucket (4 games) and Portland (1 game), Rutledge went 1-for-12 with a home run.

Curt Schilling hit 52 batters in his major league career. Evidently, few were by accident.

Talking with Rob Bradford and Lou Merloni on the Bradfo Sho podcast, Schilling went into great detail how revenge should be enacted when a pitcher hits a batter. It is a scenario that brought into the news over the weekend because of Matt Barnes’ misplaced fastball near Manny Machado’s head, and one that Schilling explained he was well versed in.

“I hit very few guys I didn’t try to hit,” Schilling said. “I didn’t have enough of Pedro in me, but I had a little. There are some guys I did that to. But I never went above the shoulder. Ask anybody, getting hit by a baseball underneath the arm, in the armpit to the side of the ribs is something nobody forgets.”

Upon identifying the preferred location of any purpose pitch, Merloni immediately concurred.

“The ribs suck,” he said.

Schilling offered the example of Andres Galarraga’s lack of success against the pitcher in their 50 showdowns, with the former first baseman hitting just .120 against the righty, while striking out 22 times. As Schilling pointed out, the “Big Cat” was also the all-time leader in getting hit by pitches from the Red Sox righty (4).

Schilling even had an example of protecting the player in the middle of the current controversy.

“The first time I ever met Dustin Pedroia I was rehabbing in Triple-A,” he recalled. “I was starting the game and in the top of the first somebody for the Indianapolis team drilled Dustin. He came back to the bench and I asked him, ‘Who do you want me to get?’ He’s like, ‘What do you mean?’ I’m like, ‘I’m going to hit somebody so you need to tell me who it needs to be.’ He’s like, ‘Really?’ I’m like, ‘Yeah, that’s how this is supposed to work. I don’t give a [expletive] if I’m on rehab.’ So he gave me a guy and I drilled him.”

Here is what happened in the Red Sox farm system on Monday.

TRIPLE-A PAWTUCKET RED SOX (7-9): Scheduled off-day

DOUBLE-A PORTLAND SEA DOGS (9-6): L, 5-0 at Harford

— Portland starter Jacob Dahlstrand took the loss, despite having not all that bad of an outing. He went 5 1/3 innings and allowed four runs on seven hits, while walking two and striking out two.

— Offensively, the Sea Dogs had three players with multi-hit games — Aneury Tavarez, Danny Mars and Tzu-Wei Lin — all recording two hits.

— Red Sox utility man Josh Rutledge played all nine innings at third base in a rehab game, as the PawSox were off so he was sent up to Hartford to get game action. He went 0-for-3 with a walk and a strikeout.

HIGH-A SALEM RED SOX (11-6): Scheduled off-day

SINGLE-A GREENVILLE DRIVE (11-7): W, 5-3, vs. Greensboro

— A four-run sixth inning was the key for the Drive in their win. It was a strange game, as Greenville scored five runs on just three hits. This was because they walked six times.

— Third baseman Bobby Dalbec went 1-for-3 with a run scored. He is now batting .311 on the year.

— Starter Michael Shawaryn pitched well going five innings and allowing two runs (one earned) on five hits. He didn’t walk a batter and struck out nine, but earned a no-decision. Hunter Smith got the win in relief by allowing one run over 2 2/3 innings and Stephen Nogosek picked up his fifth save.
