Report: Marlins checking in on Tigers SPs David Price, Rick Porcello
|by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com|
|(1:32 pm ET) Just a week removed from signing Giancarlo Stanton to a mega $325 million contract extension, the Marlins could be looking to add another big piece this offseason. The Marlins have reached out to the Tigers about the availability of pitchers David Price or Rick Porcello, according to Jon Morosi of FOX Sports. However at this point, talks between the two sides don't appear to be serious.
Price is under contract through 2015 with the Tigers. He went 15-12 with a 3.26 ERA in 34 starts, 11 of which came for Detroit in 2014. Porcello is scheduled to be a free agent in 2016. He went 15-13 with 3.43 ERA and a 1.23 WHIP in 32 games (31 starts) in 2014.
Rick Porcello knocked around Friday

|(9/26/14) Tigers pitcher Rick Porcello was knocked around Friday against the Twins.
Porcello allowed six runs, four earned, on six hits over 3 2/3 innings. He struck out six and walked three during the outing. Minnesota was able to get to Porcello early. After giving up a double to open the frame, Porcello gave up a run on a single to the next hitter. After getting two outs, Porcello gave up a two-run shot to Oswaldo Arcia. Brian Dozier would add a solo home run in the third. Dozier struck again in the fourth inning. With two men on, Dozier reached on an error, allowing two runs to come home. Both runs were unearned.
With the loss, Porcello dropped to 15-13.
Rick Porcello has rare sub-quality start
|by Al Melchior | Data Analyst|
|(9/21/14) Heading into Sunday's game against the Royals, Rick Porcello had notched 21 quality starts in 29 tries, but he fell short in the Tigers' 5-2 loss. Porcello lasted only 3 1/3 innings for his third-shortest start of the season, and he allowed four runs on nine hits and two walks. He also struck out only one batter.
Porcello is slated to make one final start, as he is scheduled to face the Twins on Friday. He will enter that contest with a 15-12 record and a 3.31 ERA.
Rick Porcello allows two runs in no-decision vs. Twins
|by R.J. White | CBSSports.com|
|(9/16/14) Tigers pitcher Rick Porcello didn't factor into the decision Tuesday, giving up two earned runs on seven hits and two walks in eight innings while striking out five in his team's 4-3 loss to the Twins.
Porcello remains winless in four straight outings, though he's delivered quality starts three times during that stretch. The damage Tuesday came on an RBI single in the fourth inning and a solo home run in the sixth, and the starter needed just 103 pitches to get through eight frames. Porcello owns a 3.19 ERA and 122:36 K:BB ratio in 197 2/3 innings. He's scheduled to face the White Sox Monday.
|2014 summary: Fantasy owners had been waiting for a Rick Porcello breakout for a few years, and it finally happened in his age-25 season. Porcello registered his first sub-3.50 ERA ever and his first sub-4.00 ERA in five years, but he didn't do it by missing more bats. Instead, Porcello tightened up his control and stranded more of his baserunners, resulting in a 3.43 ERA and 1.23 WHIP. He also pitched deeper into games, which allowed him to set career highs for innings pitched (204 2/3) and quality starts (21).|
Playing time status: Porcello has been durable over his six-year career, and now that he is more efficient, he has a chance to top 200 innings again in 2015 for the Tigers.
2015 outlook: Last season, Porcello was a top 40 starter in points leagues, but a top 50 starter in Rotisserie leagues. Because innings and quality starts could be an important part of his value again this year, owners should expect a similar discrepancy in his value between formats. Either way, Porcello is an appropriate target in the middle-to-late rounds in standard mixed leagues.
