|David Price gets back to .500 with win over Yankees |
|by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com|
(7/2/14) Rays pitcher David Price's streak of five starts with double-digit strikeouts came to an end Tuesday against the Yankees, but he still came out ahead in a 2-1 win.
Price fell just short of the milestone as he finished with nine strikeouts this time around, in just seven innings of work. He also walked three, while allowing one run on four hits as he evened his record for the season.
Price has won two start starts and three of his last four to get his record to 7-7, while he lowered his ERA to 3.50 with his seventh quality start in a row. His next start is set for Sunday in Detroit.
|David Price nets double-digit strikeouts again |
|by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com|
(6/25/14) Rays starting pitcher David Price fell a bit short at a bid for a complete-game shutout Wednesday vs. Pittsburgh. However, he managed double-digit strikeouts for a fifth straight outing, leading Tampa Bay to a 5-1 win.
Price (6-7) got into a groove early. He even retired 10 straight at one point, as the streak began with a double play in the second inning.
He carried a shutout into the ninth inning before being chased from the game after Andrew McCutchen hit an opposite-field home run to right with one out. The left-handed hurler allowed one run on five hits and one walk, while striking out 11 in 8 1/3 innings. He now has 54 strikeouts in his last five starts.
Price will be back on the hill Tuesday against the Yankees. He is 0-1 with a 6.00 ERA in two starts against New York. Though, he has 14 strikeouts in 12 innings in those starts.
|Report: Rays could be 'open for business' |
|by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com|
(6/25/14) The Rays are rumored to be "open for business" at the trade deadline, according to ESPN.
The club currently sits at 31-48, and are expected to sell of valuable pieces for future talent. David Price is considered the biggest prize, but Ben Zobrist may also be a useful asset. Both players are under contract next season. Price has one more year of arbitration, while Zobrist's deal contains a club option for 2015.
Lesser players will also likely be available, though Zobrist and Price would be the biggest prizes if put on the market. It's unclear how soon the team is looking to move talent.
Dodgers, Cardinals have pieces to get Price -- if the Rays deal
Los Angeles and St. Louis both have reserves of excellent prospects with which to form strong packages if the Rays opt to trade David Price.
MLB trading deadline: Impact players, where they may go (or have gone)
Jeff Samardzija's deal didn't even make it to the deadline. Dealt from the Cubs to the A's, he's symbolic of the MLB trading deadline in 2014 -- lots of strong arms and not many bats among our top 60 trade-available players.

For the 2014 MLB All-Star Game, which pitchers will get the start? I'll predict Felix Hernandez (AL) and Adam Wainwright (NL).
MLB Weekly Watch List: Will Rays stay hot, keep David Price?

MLB Stock Watch: Trade stock of Rays' Price, Padres' Benoit rising
Rays ace David Price keeps boosting his trade value while the thin market for help at the plate takes a hit as the Padres' Carlos Quentin continues to struggle.
|David Price followed up his 2012 Cy Young campaign with a shaky start -- sporting a 5.24 ERA after his first nine starts, then going on the DL in mid-May for a month-and-a-half with a triceps injury. When Price returned, though, all was right. In 18 starts from July 2 forward, Price had a 2.53 ERA and 0.96 WHIP. Price's strikeouts last season were markedly down -- his 7.3 K/9 was the lowest since 2009 -- but the post-DL ratios essentially made up for it. Heading into 2014, the drop in strikeouts has to be a very real concern, but Price's dominance from July on offers some optimism to cancel that out. Approach Price as a complete pitcher, and not just a source of strikeouts, and an early-round selection on Draft Day should pay dividends, especially for those in Points formats.
