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.

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.

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.
