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.

The left-handed hurler went 4-4 with a 3.59 ERA in 11 starts with Detroit following his acquisition from the Rays in July. He is 86-51 with a 3.21 ERA in seven MLB seasons.


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.

Price is slated to be a free agent after the 2015 season. He is in the final year of arbitration, with Price projected to make close to $19 million, per MLBTradeRumors.com.

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.

by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
