Tigers' David Price gets extra fielding after errors
|by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com|
|(5/3/15) Tigers pitcher David Price committed his second error of the season on Saturday, and he decided to do something about it.
Price took ground balls from a coach in the outfield on Sunday morning, getting in some extra fielding practice. He did the same thing the day after his previous error, a month ago.
"I'd rather not lead the league in errors," Price said, per MLive. "I'm giving them extra outs. Getting 27 outs is hard enough. I'd rather not have to get 28 or 29."
He's a hard worker," Tigers manager Brad Ausmus said. "He even works hard before his start on the day of his start -- just in his preparation."
Tigers lefty David Price goes complete in defeat of Royals
|by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com|
|(5/2/15) The shutout was gone Saturday night for Tigers ace David Price when he surrendered a home run to Lorenzo Cain with two out in the ninth. But the complete game against Kansas City was still there for the taking.
And Price took it. He struck out Eric Hosmer to end it.
That was only his third strikeout as he subdued the Royals early enough in counts to go all the way. He yielded just five hits and walked none. Price has given up one run or less in four of his six starts.
The performance had Brad Ausmus comparing Price to Dodgers stud lefty Clayton Kershaw.
"Their makeup is similar," Ausmus told MLB.com. "Both of them have that mindset that nobody that can come in from the bullpen has a better chance to get the hitter out than they do. It's a great asset for a pitcher, believing he can get a hitter out. Kershaw and Price are of that mindset even if they've thrown 125 pitches."
Price will try to keep up the good work next Friday against the same opponent - this time in Detroit.
Tigers ace David Price: I've heard nothing on new contract
|by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com|
|(4/30/15) Tigers ace and potential offseason free agent David Price told MLive.com that he has heard nothing in regard to possible negotiations on a contract extension.
The start-to-start inconsistency that plagued the left-hander in Tampa Bay at times has followed him to Detroit, which is one reason why he owns just a 27-21 record since 2012. Price opened this year by yielding just one run in 22 1/3 innings, but has surrendered 11 runs on 18 hits in 6 2/3 innings in his two most recent outings as his ERA skyrocketed to 3.48.
It remains to be seen if the loss of Max Scherzer and Rick Porcello to free agency and the lack of an ace-in-waiting could motivate the Tigers to offer Price a long-term deal.
Tigers SP David Price picks up win Monday
|by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com|
|(4/27/15) Tigers pitcher David Price earned his second win of the season during Monday's 5-4 win over the Twins.
"When he's on, he’s tough. You hope that your guys make some adjustments," Twins manager Paul Molitor said, per the StarTribune. "You have to understand some at-bats are going to be more challenging than others, but each time you go up there, you have to wipe the slate clean and think that’s the opportunity for you to do something to help the team."
Price allowed three runs on six hits over 6 1/3 innings. He struck out seven and walked two. Price (2-1) was yanked in the seventh inning after allowing two of the first three batters to reach base. His ERA now stands at 3.48.
His next projected start will be Saturday at Kansas City.
Tigers' Ausmus: Snowy conditions made it tough for David Price
|by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com|
|(4/23/15) Tigers manager Brad Ausmus told reporters that the wintry conditions made it tough for David Price to have any success Wednesday against the Yankees, according to MLB.com. Price struggled in midst of a snowstorm in Detroit, allowing eight earned runs over 2 1/3 innings. It was 37 degrees and windy at the start of the game before the snowstorm.
"I think without question the elements were the factor," Ausmus said. "I don't think he could feel the ball. … A guy like David who really locates well has to feel the ball coming off the end of his fingers. I don't think he was able to. I think it affected him in the sense that he couldn't feel the breaking ball, so he didn't go to it as much."
Price disagreed with Ausmus' assessment.
"In my mind, it was 72 and sunny with a heavy breeze blowing in," Price said, "so I just have to throw the ball better."
|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.
