Tigers' David Price finishes undefeated June with no-decision


by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(6/28/2015) Tigers starter David Price gave up four runs, the first time in eight starts he's given up more than two earned runs.

Price escaped with a no-decision, however, completing an undefeated month of June. Price last lost on May 31. 

Price gave up six hits, didn't walk a batter and struck out five. Price has walked a total of one batter in his last four starts, spanning 26 2/3 innings. 

"It was the best I've felt in any start this year," Price said. "I haven't felt that good all season long, but that's the game we play. I felt like I made some really good pitches and it didn't go my way."


David Price wins third straight for Tigers


by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com

Price has not lost since May 31. He allowed one run on nine hits over 6 2/3 innings on Tuesday. Price didn't walk a batter and struck out seven. He has allowed just four runs in his last four starts, spanning 29 2/3 innings. 

"I wasn't as good tonight," Price said, "but you're not always going to have your best stuff. That's when you've got to go out there and kind of lock it in, because that's when it's not easy. Tonight was by no means easy."

Price's next start is Sunday, against the White Sox.

by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(6/18/2015) Tigers starter David Price took a no-decision in Wednesday's loss to the Reds. Price allowed two runs on four hits over five innings. He walked one and struck out six. He looked to be on his way to another stellar performance, but 74-minute rain delay took him out of the game with only 72 pitches thrown.

Price gave up a run in the second inning before serving up a solo home run to Todd Frazier in the fourth. He left the game with his team trailing 2-0, but the Tigers put up a three-spot in the sixth to get him off the hook. 

Over his last three starts, the ace left-hander has allowed three earned runs while recording 25 strikeouts in 23 innings of work. He's scheduled to make his next start on Monday in Cleveland.

by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(6/12/2015) Tigers starter David Price threw a nine-inning shutout to beat Cleveland on Friday. 

Price allowed seven hits, didn't walk a batter and struck out eight. It was Price's third career shutout and first since April 24, 2012. It was his third complete game of the year, matching his total for all of last season. 

"Every pitch, fastball, breaking balls, had so much life," Cleveland's Ryan Raburn said of Price. "And it was almost never in the middle of the plate. Just about everything on the corners

Price shut down Cleveland on 93 pitches, 67 strikes. He improved to 6-2, with a 2.44 ERA. His next start is Wednesday at Cincinnati. 


Tigers SP David Price gets complete-game victory on Saturday


by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(6/6/2015) David Price was dominant in his start against the White Sox on Saturday. The Tigers' ace twirled a complete-game gem, allowing one run on five hits in the 7-1 victory. He walked a pair and struck out 11, needing 110 pitches to complete the nine-inning masterpiece.

This was Price's second complete-game victory and second double-digit strikeout performance of the season.  He lowered his ERA to 2.70, as he improved his record to 5-2.

Price actually fell behind first, giving up an RBI double to Alexei Ramirez in the third inning. But he was stellar after that, and the Tigers put up a five-spot in the fifth inning as Detroit put an end to its eight-game losing streak.

Price will look to keep the good times rolling in his next start, scheduled for next Saturday at home against the Indians.

by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(6/2/2015) The Tigers announced their upcoming starting rotation for the weekend series against Chicago, per the Free Press

Kyle Ryan, recently called up from the minor leagues, will get his first start of the year for the Tigers in Friday's game. David Price will follow on Saturday, and Alfredo Simon, in his second start since returning from bereavement leave, will start Sunday. 


Tigers SP David Price goes 7 2/3 innings in loss to Angels


by Ruben Palacios | Staff Writer
(5/31/2015) Tigers starting pitcher David Price threw a solid performance on Sunday, but it wasn't enough to get the win.

Price tossed 7 2/3 innings in his team's 4-2 loss to the Angels. He gave up eight hits and four earned runs while striking out six batters and walking four. The starter was removed with the bases loaded in the eighth inning and two outs in a tie game after throwing 121 pitches, but Joba Chamberlain would give up a soft single to the next batter to bring home the decisive two runs of the night.

"Price was done, I thought, at that point in the game," manager Brad Ausmus said, per MLB.com. "He did his job. Joba comes in, there's a ball that if off the end of the bat that barely leaves the infield, perfectly placed, and it costs us the game."

Price (4-2) has a 3.15 ERA in 74 1/3 innings this season.


Tigers not strongly confident they can sign SP David Price


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(5/29/2015) The Tigers are not particularly confident that they will be able to sign ace left-hander David Price, CBSSports.com Baseball Insider Jon Heyman is reporting. Price could be destined for free agency after this season.

Detroit is 9-1 when Price starts this year despite his occasional meltdowns. But its front office is concerned that he will want to test the market and top the contract earned by Max Scherzer, who left the Tigers after last season to join Washington. Scherzer earned $210 million after turning down the Detroit offer of $144 million.

Price, however, is considered more likely to remain where he is comfortable than a guy who is seeking maximum dollar.

He has seven quality starts and another in which he pitched shutout ball for 5 2/3 innings. But two terrible outings has resulted in a still-strong 2.97 ERA.


David Price wins third straight for Tigers


by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(5/27/2015) Tigers starter David Price moved to 4-1 on the season with his third straight victory on Tuesday. 

Price pitched seven shutout innings, allowing five hits and a walk. He struck out three and cut his ERA to 2.97.

"I felt good all night," Price said, per MLB.com. "I was fighting myself in a couple of situations, but that it's all a part of it. I was pitching to the situation."

Price's next start is Sunday, at the Angels. 


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.

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.

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.

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.
