by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer

Tigers SP David Price takes tough-luck loss on Saturday


by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(7/18/2015) Tigers ace David Price was excellent in his start against the Orioles on Saturday, but he was left with his third loss of the season. Price allowed one run--a Manny Machado solo home run--on six hits over seven innings. He walked one and struck out 12, matching his season-high.

Unfortunately, he was out-pitched by Orioles starter Chris Tillman, who blanked the Tigers for eight innings in the 3-0 Orioles win.

Price (9-3) keeps rolling along in 2015, as Saturday's performance dropped his ERA to 2.32, third lowest in the American League. The 12 punchouts give him 127 on the year, which ranks him fourth in the league.

"He was pretty good from the first pitch," Tigers manager Brad Ausmus said, per MLB.com. "I don't think he really wavered. He had his velocity; his changeup was outstanding. Pitch count got up a little early, but as good pitchers do, they find a way to get through seven or eight."

by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com

Price became the second Tigers pitcher to win the All Star Game in as many years. Max Scherzer earned the win last season.

by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(7/13/2015) Tigers ace David Price, who stated Monday that he doesn't believe he'll be traded, is also not close to signing a long-term deal with the team.

But he's certainly open to it.

"You'll have to ask my agent," he told the Detroit Free Press when asked if the Tigers had contracted his representatives.

Price has won his last five decisions and boasts a 9-2 record and 2.38 ERA that would be the best of his career if maintained.

"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.

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

"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

Tigers SP David Price gets complete-game victory on Saturday


by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer

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.

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."

by Ted Leshinski | Staff Writer

"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.
