Tigers' David Price Ks seven vs. Orioles
|by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com|
|(3/26/15) Tigers starting pitcher David Price struck out a spring-best seven batters during Thursday's 6-4 win over the Orioles.
Price permitted three runs on three hits with no walks and seven strikeouts over 6 2/3 innings of work -- his longest outing of the spring. He has a 4.26 ERA, a 1.11 WHIP and 24:5 K:BB ratio through five Grapefruit League starts (19 innings).
Price was named Detroit's Opening Day starter April 6 at home against the Twins.
David Price in very early stages of contract talks with Tigers
|by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com|
|(3/25/15) Tigers starting pitcher David Price said Wednesday he met with his agent -- Bo McKinnis -- on Tuesday night and indicated there have been talks with Detroit about a contract extension. However, no numbers have been exchanged.
"I wouldn't even call it groundwork," Price said, per MLB.com.
Price, who will make $19.75 million in 2015, will be a free agent after the season. The left-handed hurler won the AL Cy Young in 2012. He is a four-time All-Star and has a career .628 winning percentage.
Last spring, the Tigers offered starting pitcher Max Scherzer a six-year, $144 million contract extension, which he turned down. Scherzer signed a seven-year, $210 million contract with the Nationals in the offseason.
Tigers pitcher David Price tosses seven strikeouts Saturday
|by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com|
|(3/21/15) Tigers starting pitcher David Price threw 4 1/3 innings Saturday, allowing two runs on eight hits with seven strikeouts in Detroit's game against the Mets.
Price, who was named the opening day starter earlier in the week, surrendered four consecutive hits in the third, leading to two runs.
"There are definitely times out there when you need a strikeout. That's good to see," said Price to MLB.com. "I got some strikeouts, one looking, some good changeups, some good fastballs. I was getting swings and misses on I guess I every pitch I threw. That's always good, but [there's] always room for improvement."
Tigers choose David Price over Justin Verlander for Opening Day
|by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com|
|(3/20/15) Tigers manager Brad Ausmus named David Price his Opening Day starter, ending Justin Verlander's streak of seven consecutive Opening Day starts, per the team's official website.
This will be Price's fourth Opening Day start, and his first with the Tigers. He has a 3.54 ERA through 20 1/3 innings pitched on Opening Day.
"Looking at it from a baseball perspective, I felt this was the (right) decision and it wasn't an easy decision," Ausmus said, per the Detroit News. "Justin Verlander has been an outstanding pitcher for a long time. He has done a lot for the Tigers and this organization. But, I have to make a decision based on baseball and what is best for the 2015 Tigers."
The 29-year-old spent his entire career with Tampa Bay before being traded to Detroit in July of 2014. Price is 86-51 with a 3.21 ERA over seven MLB seasons. The left-hander went 15-12 with a 3.26 ERA and league-leading 271 strikeouts last year.
Tigers' Price on bullpen work: 'I felt like I found my delivery'
|by R.J. White | CBSSports.com|
|(3/17/15) Tigers pitcher David Price wasn't satisfied with his delivery and refined it in the bullpen Friday with pitching coach Jeff Jones until he got it right, MLB.com reports.
"I threw 38 pitches in my bullpen," Price said Monday, "and that's way more pitches than I would ever throw in any bullpen, but we just needed to work some stuff out and I felt like I found my delivery. If I can just have my delivery, it just puts me in a position where I can repeat everything and be more consistent."
Price's work showed in Monday's outing, in which he tossed four scoreless innings while striking out five.
"That was a lot better than five days ago, and a lot better than 10 days ago," Price said. "It was good to be out there and to be able to not only be efficient, but to be able to execute for the most part when I was out there. It was a good day."
Price had allowed four earned runs in two innings in his previous outing.
|2014 summary: David Price had never had better control or been harder to make contact against than he was in 2014, yet his season could be seen as a mild disappointment. He did finish sixth among pitchers in Fantasy value but was overshadowed by Clayton Kershaw, Johnny Cueto and Corey Kluber. Perhaps if Price had a better record than 15-12, he would have received more acclaim. The career-high 25 home runs Price allowed helped to float his ERA above 3.00, and given that his ground ball rate dropped for the second season in a row, there may be reason for mild concern there.|
Playing time status: Price set a career high with 248 1/3 innings in 2014, and while he may not reach that number, he should be a Fantasy workhorse once again.
2015 outlook: Strikeout pitcher, ground ball specialist, control artist...Price hasn't been all of these things every season, but he's done enough of each to pitch at an elite level nearly every year. He should be a top six starter again next season for the Tigers, worthy of a pick in the early rounds.
