Tigers' David Price won't 'close door' on contract negotiations
|by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com|
|(2/22/15) With Tigers pitcher David Price set to become a free agent after the season, he said he'd rather not have to deal with contract talks during the season and prefers to focus strictly on baseball, reports CBSSports.com Baseball Insider Jon Heyman.
"I'd rather not talk about it all year long," Price said. "But I'm not closing the door."
If a deal is not reached by opening day, Price said he would prefer if contract talks calm down during the season.
"I'm focused on being a Tiger," he said. "Right now this is home and I'm fine with that."
David Price hasn't heard any talk of an extension with Tigers

|(2/21/15) David Price will be a free agent after this season, one of the reasons the Rays were willing to deal him to the Tigers at least season's trade deadline.
The former Cy Young Award winner said he hasn't heard any talk about an extension. Price told MLive.com's Chris Iott that, as far as he knows, there have been no discussions with the Tigers.
Price went 15-12 with a 3.26 ERA and league-leading 271 strikeouts last year.
Tigers' Price: 'I definitely felt I was drained at the end of last year'
|by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com|
|(2/2/15) Tigers starting pitcher David Price indicated his 2014 season was perhaps the most exhausting of his career, per the Detroit Free Press. On top of pitching a career-high 256 1/3 innings, which included the playoffs, he also dealt with the midseason trade from Tampa Bay to Detroit.
"That was definitely the longest year I've had in the big leagues," Price said during the Tigers' winter caravan. "Probably the most stressful year I've had in the big leagues.
"I definitely felt I was drained at the end of last year. I was drained physically, but I felt I was drained mentally as well, so just kind of letting everything recharge, it feels good right now."
Price admitted he took some time off after the season and only recently got back into the swing of things.
"I felt like that was the biggest thing that I needed to do. Let my body recharge and reset," Price said of taking time off.
David Price would 'absolutely' consider extension with Tigers
|by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com|
|(1/24/15) When asked if he's considering signing a long-term contract extension with the Tigers, starting pitcher David Price replied with an emphatic "absolutely," according to the Detroit Free-Press on Saturday.
Price, 29, avoided arbitration with the Tigers by agreeing to a one-year, $19.75-million last week. He made $14 million in 2014. General manager Dave Dombrowski also indicated earlier in the week that the team never considered trading Price, and that they're aiming to keep the left-handed hurler in Detroit "for a long time."
Price went 4-4 with a 3.59 ERA in 11 starts after joining the Tigers via a midseason trade.
GM: Tigers aim to keep David Price 'for a long time'
|by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com|
|(1/22/15) Tigers general manager Dave Dombrowski made it clear David Price will be pitching for the team in 2015 and hinted at the possibility of pursuing an extension with Price, reports the Detroit Free Press. Price was acquired from the Rays at last year's trade deadline.
"I will tell you and I can safely tell you we've never had any trade discussions about David Price this winter," Dombrowski told the paper. "People have talked, I cannot tell you that somebody had not inquired about him a time or two, but we were never in discussions to trade him."
Added Dombrowski: "We hope he stays a Tiger for a long time."
Price, 29, will be a free agent next winter. Detroit signed him to a one-year, $19.75 million contract a week ago. With Max Scherzer having signed with the Nationals, Price is the Tigers' ace.
"He's a quality guy," Dombrowski told the paper. "His teammates like him, he likes his teammates, he likes the situation here and he knows how we feel about him. We like him a great deal."
|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.
