Tigers SP David Price takes no-decision on Thursday vs. Astros


by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(5/21/2015) Tigers starter David Price was solid in a no-decision on Thursday against the Astros. Price went 6 2/3 innings, allowing three runs (two earned) on five hits. He walked one and struck out a season-high 12 batters, as the Tigers won 6-5 in 11 innings.

Pitching with a 5-0 lead, Price was throwing shutout ball until the top of the seventh. He allowed an RBI triple to Evan Gattis, followed by a couple of run-scoring singles before being lifted for a reliever. 

"I kind of made some adjustments throughout the week, and that's the best I've felt on the mound regardless of results," said Price, per MLive.com

"I don't care about the strikeouts. I don't care about the runs there in the seventh inning. That's the best I've felt, that's the best I've thrown the baseball this year."

That makes back-to-back quality outings for Price, who lowered his ERA to 3.32. He's scheduled to toe the rubber next on Tuesday in Oakland. 

"He did an excellent job, really," Tigers manager Brad Ausmus said. "He commanded the fastball to both sides of he plate, used his curveballs, change up, cutter very effectively. I just think it was a case where they strung some hits together and scored a few runs. It was still an excellent outing for him."


Tigers SP David Price allows three HRs, takes no-decision Saturday


by Ted Leshinski | Staff Writer
(5/16/2015) Tigers starting pitcher David Price surrendered three solo home runs and struck out nine in 6 2/3 innings on Saturday for a no-decision against the Cardinals.

Matt Carpenter, Jhonny Peralta and Peter Bourjos each touched Price for a homer in the game.

"It was some good swings on some pitches down the middle of the plate, and that's what good hitters do," Price said. "It's a tough game."

Price, overall, allowed seven hits in the outing.

Price had been dealing with a hamstring issue during the week, forcing him to push back his scheduled start to Saturday.

Price's next scheduled start is Thursday against the Astros.


Tigers ace David Price not concerned with hamstring injury


by Elliott Smith | Staff Writer
(5/13/2015) Tigers starter David Price who is dealing with a hamstring issue that forced him to push his next start by two days to Saturday, said that the injury is not cause for concern, per MLive.com. 

"My health right now is fine," he said. "My last two days have been very good, very encouraging."

Price, who suffered the injury after stepping on a bat while backing up home plate last is 3-1 with a 3.30 ERA and 33:10 K:BB ratio in 46 1/3 innings.


Tigers' David Price bumped back two days due to injury


by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(5/10/2015) Tigers starter David Price will start Saturday, in St. Louis, per MLB.com. Price was originally scheduled for Thursday, but a hamstring injury in his next start put that in doubt. 

Anibal Sanchez will move up a day and pitch in Price's place on Thursday. Shane Greene will start on Friday. 


MRI reveals mild hamstring strain for Tigers' David Price


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(5/9/2015) An MRI on pitcher David Price has revealed a mild hamstring strain, the team announced Saturday.

Price suffered the injury after stepping on a bat while backing up home plate on a play Friday. The Tigers will wait until early next week to decide when he will make his next start.

Price is 3-1 with a 3.30 ERA and 33:10 K:BB ratio in 46 1/3 innings.


Tigers' Ausmus: David Price dealing with 'minimal soreness'


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(5/9/2015) Tigers manager Brad Ausmus said pitcher David Price wasn't limping Saturday morning after suffering a hamstring injury the previous day and that the pitcher felt "minimal soreness," MLive.com reports.

Price stepped on a bat while backing up a play at home plate Friday, saying after the game that "when I stepped on the bat, it rolled and kind of hyperextended my foot."

Price appears like he'll be able to make his next start provided he doesn't suffer a setback during the week, though the team is still waiting on results of an MRI done on his injured hamstring. He is 3-1 with a 3.30 ERA and 33:10 K:BB ratio in 46 1/3 innings.


Tigers SP David Price leaves Friday's game with apparent ankle injury


by Ted Leshinski | Staff Writer
(5/8/2015) Tigers starter David Price left Friday's game against the Royals in the seventh inning because of an apparent ankle injury suffered when he stepped on a bat, reports ESPN.

After an Alex Gordon single, the home plate umpire tossed the bat towards the screen were Price stepped on it while backing up the play.

"I don't feel anything right now, but when I stepped on the bat, it rolled and kind of hyperextended my foot," Price said. "It pulled on my hamstring, and when you feel something in your body that you've never felt before, you are going to be concerned."

"I don't know what will happen, we'll see how I feel tomorrow," Price added.

Price gave up four runs on 13 hits in 6 1/3 innings for a no-decision in the game.

"Any injury is concerning, especially when you are talking about the ace of your staff," Tigers manager Brad Ausmus said. "But I'm less concerned now that I've heard the diagnosis."

Price's next scheduled start is Thursday against the Twins.


Tigers' David Price gets extra fielding after errors


by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(5/3/2015) 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
(5/2/2015) 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
(4/30/2015) 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
(4/27/2015) 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
(4/23/2015) 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."


Tigers P David Price has horrid outing in loss


by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com
(4/22/2015) Tigers pitcher David Price was only able to go 2 1/3 innings as the Yankees rocked him in Wednesday's 13-4 loss. 

Price allowed 10 hits and eight earned runs in a short span. The Yankees went to town early, scoring six runs in the first inning. Price finished his day with three walks and two strikeouts. Price faced 11 batters in the first inning and a total of 21. 

"You throw the ball as bad as I did and you give up more runs than you get outs, you don't deserve to come up here," Price said, via MLive.com. "That's why I stayed out there."

Price's next projected start is on April 27 against the Twins. 


Yankees' McCann batting .500 in career vs. Tigers SP David Price


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(4/22/2015) Yankees catcher Brian McCann enters play Tuesday against the Tigers mired in a 4-for-22 slump over his last six games. David Price will be on the hill for Detroit, but that's not necessarily bad news for McCann, who has a favorable history against Detroit's ace.

McCann is batting .500 (7 for 14) with three home runs, six RBI, one walk and one strikeout in his career against Price.


Tigers ace David Price is right, but unlucky in Friday win


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(4/17/2015) All was well for Tigers ace left-hander David Price on Friday afternoon. All would have been better, however, if his hitters had come through with one clutch hit in the first eight innings.

That deficiency cost Price a victory against the White Sox, but he still completed eight innings and gave up a mere one run on four hits. Price walked two and fanned nine along the way. His lone mistake was blasted over the fence by former Tiger Avisail Garcia leading off the second inning.

"That's the best I've felt all year," Price told MLB.com after the game. "I've felt better each start of the season. ... Today I got good results. It was just a great win."

Price, who lowered his ERA to a brilliant 0.40 and has yielded only 13 hits in 22 1/3 innings this season, is still just 1-0 after successive no-decisions. He will attempt to rectify that Wednesday against the visiting Yankees.


Pirates made a run at David Price before 2014 trade deadline


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(4/17/2015) The Pirates made a run at left-handed ace David Price with an offer of a prospect package before the Tigers acquired him from Tampa Bay in last year's trade deadline. It was a "very strong try," a source told CBSSports.com Baseball Insider Jon Heyman.

Price has gone 5-4 with a 3.03 ERA, a 1.09 WHIP and 93:18 K:BB ratio over 13 starts (92 innings) since the trade.


Tigers pitcher David Price allows three runs, earns no decision


by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(4/11/2015) Tigers pitcher David Price allowed three runs on four hits over 5 2/3 innings pitched in Detroit's 9-6 win over the Indians Saturday. Despite Price's strong outing, he finished with a no decision.

Price added six strikeouts and three walks to his totals. He was in control early in the game, but was touched up in the sixth inning for three runs before he was replaced.

Price will look to keep rolling Friday against the White Sox.


Tigers SP David Price nearly has CG shutout in Opening Day win


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(4/6/2015) Tigers starting pitcher David Price nearly threw a complete-game shutout Opening Day against the Twins. However, he had to settle for 8 2/3 scoreless innings during a 4-0 victory.

Price (1-0) was dominant from the start Monday. He retired the first 13 batters he faced before Kennys Vargas singled with one out in the fifth inning. 

The left-hander retired the first two batters in the ninth inning before allowing back-to-back singles. Manager Brad Ausmus then pulled Price from the game and replaced him with Joe Nathan, who struck out Torii Hunter to finish off the win.

Price allowed five hits -- all singles -- and no walks, while striking out five. He threw 75 of 101 pitches for strikes. He is scheduled to make his next start Saturday at Cleveland.


Tigers, David Price remain apart in contract talks


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(4/2/2015) The Tigers continue to remain apart in talks about a contract extension with starting pitcher David Price, according to CBSSports.com Baseball Insider Jon Heyman. Three sources with knowledge of the contract talks suggest the two sides do not appear close to a deal as Opening Day approaches.

Price has expressed interest in staying with Detroit, and the Tigers are also interested in keeping the left-handed hurler on a long-term deal. However, it is not known what the Tigers are willing to offer.

Detroit signed starting pitcher Justin Verlander to a five-year, $140 million contract extension a few years ago. However, they weren't able to sign Max Scherzer last spring after they offered a six-year, $144 million extension.


Verlander injury forces Tigers to change rotation plans


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(4/2/2015) With the announcement Tigers starting pitcher Justin Verlander will begin the year on the disabled list due to a triceps injury, the rotation for the season-opening series against the Twins will be David Price on Opening Day, Anibal Sanchez in the second game and Shane Greene in the series finale, per MLB.com.

Alfredo Simon still remains on track to open the second series against Cleveland on April 10. It is then expected Price will make his second start on April 11 against the Indians. As of now, Verlander is expected to come off the disabled list and make his season debut April 12 at Cleveland.


Tigers SP David Price open to extension talks during season


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(3/31/2015) Tigers starting pitcher David Price told reporters after his final start of the spring that he's not going to rush contract negotiations, and is open to extension talks during the regular season, per MLB.com.

"I left it open to talks throughout the year. There's no rush for them [to take place]," Price said. "It wouldn't be something that would linger on. These guys, they know what they want to do, and so do I.

"If we get to that point, then I think once it gets going, it would go quickly. If it doesn't happen, then it just wouldn't happen."

Price was named Detroit's Opening Day starter April 6 at home against the Twins. He finished the spring 0-2 with a 5.76 ERA and a 29:5 K:BB ratio over 25 innings.


Tigers SP David Price gives up seven runs in final spring start


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(3/31/2015) Tigers starting pitcher David Price took the hill Tuesday against the Pirates for his final start this spring. Although, he didn't save his best effort for last.

The left-handed hurler allowed seven runs on eight hits and no walks during a 7-3 loss. He struck out five.

Price got off to a pretty good start, retiring the first nine batters he faced. Unfortunately, his day began to unravel during a four-run fourth inning. Andrew McCutchen and Jung Ho Kang had RBI doubles, while Francisco Cervelli added a two-run homer.

The Pirates added three more runs in the sixth inning off Price on run-scoring singles from Cervelli and Sean Rodriguez.

Price, who will make his next start in the season opener Monday against the Twins, finishes the spring 0-2 with a 5.76 ERA. He had 29 strikeouts to five walks in 25 innings. He allowed just the one home run in six starts.

by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(3/26/2015) 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
(3/25/2015) 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
(3/21/2015) 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."
