Tigers' David Price Ks seven vs. Orioles


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."


Tigers choose David Price over Justin Verlander for Opening Day


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(3/20/2015) Tigers manager Brad Ausmus named David Price his Opening Day starter, ending Justin Verlander's streak of seven consecutive Opening Day starts, per the team's official website.

This will be Price's fourth Opening Day start, and his first with the Tigers. He has a 3.54 ERA through 20 1/3 innings pitched on Opening Day.

"Looking at it from a baseball perspective, I felt this was the (right) decision and it wasn't an easy decision," Ausmus said, per the Detroit News. "Justin Verlander has been an outstanding pitcher for a long time. He has done a lot for the Tigers and this organization. But, I have to make a decision based on baseball and what is best for the 2015 Tigers."

The 29-year-old spent his entire career with Tampa Bay before being traded to Detroit in July of 2014. Price is 86-51 with a 3.21 ERA over seven MLB seasons. The left-hander went 15-12 with a 3.26 ERA and league-leading 271 strikeouts last year.


Tigers' Price on bullpen work: 'I felt like I found my delivery'


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(3/17/2015) Tigers pitcher David Price wasn't satisfied with his delivery and refined it in the bullpen Friday with pitching coach Jeff Jones until he got it right, MLB.com reports.

"I threw 38 pitches in my bullpen," Price said Monday, "and that's way more pitches than I would ever throw in any bullpen, but we just needed to work some stuff out and I felt like I found my delivery. If I can just have my delivery, it just puts me in a position where I can repeat everything and be more consistent."

Price's work showed in Monday's outing, in which he tossed four scoreless innings while striking out five.

"That was a lot better than five days ago, and a lot better than 10 days ago," Price said. "It was good to be out there and to be able to not only be efficient, but to be able to execute for the most part when I was out there. It was a good day."

Price had allowed four earned runs in two innings in his previous outing.


Tigers P David Price gives up one hit in four innings during loss


by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com
(3/16/2015) Tigers left-hander David Price pitched four scoreless innings during Monday's 1-0 loss to the Cardinals. 

It was a much better outing for Price, who gave up four runs in two innings last Wednesday. Against St. Louis, Price struck out five batters, walked one and gave up just one hit. Price faced 13 batters in the afternoon. 


Tigers' David Price allows four runs in two innings Wednesday


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(3/11/2015) Tigers pitcher David Price struggled in his second spring start Wednesday, allowing four earned runs on four hits and two walks in two innings while striking out three in his team's loss to the Nationals.

"My body feels good and the first couple starts in spring, that's what you want to make sure that you can control," Price said after the outing, per MLB.com. "I just have to execute more. Throw more strikes, get ahead. Just another game. I'm getting in the swing of things."

Price opened spring with two scoreless innings Friday.


Tigers P David Price debuts new curveball grip vs. Mets


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(3/6/2015) Tigers pitcher David Price showcased his new curveball in his spring debut Friday afternoon against the Mets, per MLive.com. Price revealed that A's starter Sonny Gray taught him the pitch while they were working together at Vanderbilt in the offseason.

"We worked on it quite a bit, and it feels good," Price said. "I feel like I can change speeds on it."

He tossed two innings without allowing a hit. Price, who walked only 38 batters last year, was a bit uncharacteristic in the second inning when he walked a batter and hit one before his outing was over.

"I just couldn't slow myself down that second inning," Price said. "I couldn't find my release point."


Tigers' David Price won't 'close door' on contract negotiations


by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com
(2/22/2015) 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


by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(2/21/2015) 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
(2/2/2015) 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
(1/24/2015) 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
(1/22/2015) 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."


Dombrowski: Tigers never considered trading David Price


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(1/21/2015) Tigers general manager Dave Dombrowski said Wednesday that the team never considered trading pitcher David Price this offseason, the Detroit Free Press reports.

Dombrowski added that other teams inquired on Price's availability in a potential trade. Price avoided arbitration with the Tigers by agreeing to a one-year, $19.75-million last week. He went 4-4 with a 3.59 ERA in 11 starts after joining the Tigers via a midseason trade.

Price is slated to reach free agency at the end of the 2015 season.


Tigers SP David Price agrees to $19.75M salary for 2015


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(1/16/2015) Tigers starting pitcher David Price was able to avoid arbitration Friday by agreeing to a one-year deal for $19.75 million, according to CBSSports.com Baseball Insider Jon Heyman.

Price was in his final year of arbitration and is set to become a free agent after the 2015 season. He made $14 million in 2014.

Report: Cardinals considering Hamels, Price and Scherzer


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(1/8/2015) The Cardinals are considering trading for Cole Hamels or David Price, and are also exploring the option of signing Max Scherzer, according to FoxSports.com.

While St. Louis has shown interest in both Hamels and Price, no deal is close, according to the report. The club is reportedly concerned with the rotation depth behind Lance Lynn. Adam Wainwright is the team's ace, but is coming off elbow surgery. Michael Wacha also had arm issues last season. 

St. Louis is reportedly more interested in picking up a left-handed starter, but the cost to acquire Hamels is high. The club would have to part with pitching prospects Carlos Martinez or Marco Gonzalez. Outfielders Randal Grichuk or Stephen Piscotty would have to be considered as well. 

Price may be cheaper, as he's under contract for just one more season. If the team brings in Price, the thought is that they would attempt to sign him to a long-term contract.

The 29-year-old Price won the AL Cy Young award in 2012 with the Rays. He spent his entire career with Tampa Bay before being traded to Detroit in July. Price is 86-51 with a 3.21 ERA over seven MLB seasons.
