Description: Tampa Bay left-hander David Price came up just short of a shutout Friday at Cincinnati but he still picked up the win.
Insight: Price (2-0, 2.91 ERA) gave up an opposite-field homer to Joey Votto in the bottom of the ninth and finished with 10 strikeouts and one walk in 8 1/3 innings. Grant Balfour picked up the final two outs for his third save but not before walking three batters.
 
3/13/2014 2:32:00 PM
Description: Tampa Bay left-hander David Price was named the Opening Day starter for the Rays.
Insight: The 2012 AL Cy Young winner is an elite fantasy arm coming off a mediocre season (10-8, 3.33 ERA, 1.098 WHIP), but this certainly isn't a surprise to anyone.
 
1/16/2014 2:49:00 PM
Description: David Price and the Rays avoided arbitration Friday by agreeing to a one-year, $14 million contract.
Insight: It doesn't mean that he'll still be pitching for the Rays at the end of the season if another team offers the right combination of youngsters. The 2012 AL Cy Young winner is an elite fantasy arm coming off a mediocre season (10-8, 3.33 ERA, 1.098 WHIP).

Description: David Price acknowledged Wednesday that he has probably played his final game as a Tampa Bay Ray. SOURCE: ESPN
Insight: We had heard rumblings about Price possibly getting traded this offseason but now it seems almost certain to happen. Obviously, it will require a team to give up a package of top level prospects, but we're guessing plenty of clubs will be after the 2012 Cy Young winner when the season is over.

Description: Tampa Bay starter David Price, who went on a Twitter rant over the weekend, could be shopped this winter.
Insight: In fact, according to Joel Sherman of the New York Post, many big league executives have expressed that they'd be surprised if Price isn't traded. The Rays rarely keep their star players when they reach free agency with Evan Longoria being the most notable exception.
 
Hot7/29/2013 10:19:00 PM
Description: Rays starter David Price had another dominant performance Monday at Boston, allowing just two hits and walking none over 7 1/3 innings of one-run ball.
Insight: Price threw just 90 pitches and likely would have thrown his fourth complete game in his last five starts if not for a rain delay in the middle of the seventh inning. Rays manager Joe Maddon brought Price out after the delay but he wasn't as sharp and was removed after facing one batter. The lefty has won five of six starts since coming off the DL.
 
Hot7/24/2013 10:19:00 PM
Description: David Price pulled the Rays within a half game of first place in the AL East with a dominant outing Wednesday against the Red Sox.
Insight: Price was spectacular, allowing just one run (a solo homer to Mike Napoli) in nine innings. Incredibly, he kept his pitch count under 100 for the night (97 pitches). Three out of Price's last four starts have been complete games. After a slow start to the year, he's pitching like a Cy Young winner again.
 
7/19/2013 10:27:00 PM
Description: Tampa Bay starter David Price gave up three homers and four earned runs over the first three innings Friday at Toronto but hung around for seven innings and picked up his fourth win of the year.
Insight: Price has gone 3-1 since coming off the DL, but Friday was his first game in that span against a good offense. He faced Houston twice and the Chicago White Sox once prior to Friday.
 
7/12/2013 10:34:00 PM
Description: Tampa Bay ace David Price went all nine innings Friday in a loss to the Astros.
Insight: The 87-pitch outing was the shortest complete game in the majors this season. The loss snapped an eight-game winning streak for the Rays.
 
7/7/2013 7:26:00 PM
Description: Rays starter David Price threw a complete game in Sunday's 3-1 win over the Chicago White Sox. He scattered eight hits, seven of which were singles, walked none and struck out six.
Insight: Price has allowed 11 hits and one run and posted a 15/0 K/BB in 16 innings since returning from the DL. It helped that he faced two of the worst offensive teams in the majors in Houston and Chicago in his first two games, but fantasy owners will take it after Price went 1-4 with a 5.24 ERA prior to his injury.
 
7/2/2013 1:25:00 PM
Description: The Rays activated David Price on Tuesday to face the Houston Astros.
Insight: Price has been battling a triceps injury since mid-May. The 2012 AL Cy Young winner hasn't had a great season so far. In nine starts, he's just 1-4 with an ERA over five. Hopefully it was caused by injury and the month and a half off will have him pitching like a superstar again.

Insight: Price has been battling a triceps injury since mid-May. The 2012 AL Cy Young winner hasn't had a great season so far. In nine starts, he's just 1-4 with an ERA over five.
 
6/27/2013 12:32:00 PM
Description: Rays left-hander David Price (triceps) appears ready to come off the disabled list after dominating in his latest rehab start, according to the Tampa Tribune.
Insight: Granted, Price was facing a Single-A team, but he threw five shutout innings and struck out eight while allowing two hits and one walk. "I guess whatever I did out there today is going to be my lobbying," Price said of his chance to rejoin the Rays. "If that's not enough, I guess I'll have to throw another one." Price added that his strained left triceps that has kept him out since mid-May felt fine and that he could have thrown more than 72 pitches Wednesday. Price's fastball sat in the 92- to 94-mph range during the start.
 
6/21/2013 8:14:00 PM
Description: Rays left-hander David Price (triceps) allowed two hits and two runs (one earned) with two walks and four K over 2 2/3 innings Friday in his first rehab start, according to Joe Smith of the Tampa Bay Times.
Insight: Price threw 49 pitches and said he felt really good. He'll probably need 1-2 more rehab starts before returning to the Rays' rotation.
 
6/13/2013 4:59:00 PM
Description: Rays left-hander David Price said he felt great during a simulated game Thursday, according to Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times.
Insight: Price should be able to start a rehab assignment within the next few days.
 
6/11/2013 5:54:00 PM
Description: Rays left-hander David Price is expected to start his minor league rehab assignment next week, according to Roger Mooney of the Tampa Tribune.
Insight: Price has to get through his simulated game on Thursday first. The Rays are hoping to get him four starts before the All-Star break.
 
6/7/2013 4:50:00 PM
Description: According to Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times, Rays left-hander David Price said he felt good Friday after throwing his first bullpen session since being placed on the DL with a triceps injury.
Insight: Price threw 38 pitches during the session and is scheduled to throw another one Monday. If he gets through Monday's bullpen without issue, he'll likely progress to a simulated game or a minor league rehab start.
 
5/26/2013 11:45:00 AM
Description: According to the Tampa Bay Times, 2012 AL Cy Young winner David Price is unlikely to return from a triceps injury until mid-to-late June.
Insight: Price's trade value has taken a major hit thanks to this injury and the subpar 5.24 ERA he produced in his first nine starts. The Rays are probably wishing they had dealt Price during the offseason like the Mets did with their Cy Young winner, R.A. Dickey.
 
5/16/2013 3:19:00 PM
Description: Rays starter David Price has been placed on the 15-day disabled list with a strained left triceps muscle.
Insight: The reigning AL Cy Young Award winner left Wednesday's start with the injury and has a 5.24 ERA in 55 innings. His fastball velocity is down a couple ticks, so it would make sense if this injury has been lingering unbeknownst to Price or the Rays. Jake Odorizzi or Chris Archer likely will be called up to take the spot in the rotation, and both would make for good fantasy options given the Rays' past success cultivating pitching prospects.
 
5/16/2013 1:30:00 PM
Description: Rays manager Joe Maddon said the MRI on David Price's left triceps showed "nothing serious," according to Roger Mooney of the Tampa Tribune, but the left-hander is unlikely to make his next start Monday. He'll be reevaluated Thursday.
Insight: Price hasn't ruled himself out of Monday's start. He said he'll know more Thursday when he comes to Tropicana Field and tries to play catch. The reigning AL Cy Young Award winner left Wednesday's start with the injury and has a 5.24 ERA in 55 innings. His fastball velocity is down a couple ticks, so it would make sense if this injury has been lingering unbeknownst to Price or the Rays.
