Rays vs. Reds, game one preview: David Price welcomes Cincinnati to the AL East

Matt Joyce wasn't too bad, either With Cesar Ramos slated to move from the bullpen to the starting rotation on Sunday, David Price had an extra imperative: pitch deep into the game and save the bullpen for what might turn into a matchups game. He delivered in style. The Cincinnati lineup, which hasn't seen Price since 2011, clearly didn't know what to do with his fastball which he commanded to all corners of the zone. And once they were keyed up for his fastball, Price calmly sat them down with his changeup instead. Of the 33 changeups Price threw, Reds batters whiffed at 12 of them...

Pitcher preview: Nick Martinez

Nick Martinez, a 23-year old with just 32 innings in double-A, will start today against David Price and the Rays. I've already covered in the series preview just how much of a mismatch this probably is. I've also covered just how little the projection systems know about him. Let me add to that: I also know very little about him. Martinez was mostly a shortstop in college, but Baseball America and Baseball Prospectus scouting reports both praise his pitchability. He can throw a low-90s fastball, a slider, and a changeup. The changeup is a newer offering for Martinez. Apparently he gets...

Rays vs. Jays, game 1: Price ace-like, Dickey not

Rays vs. Jays, game 1: Price ace-like, Dickey not

The Rays are on pace to win 162. The first at bat of the Rays' 2014 season was David Price against Jose Reyes, and it was a worthy beginning. Price placed a sinker on the inside corner for a called strike, and then brought a cutter inside a bit too far for a ball. The third pitch was an outside fastball that Reyes reached for and flared the other way into short left-center field. Desmond Jennings had to range a long way forward and to his left, and he capped his run off with a full-speed diving grab. Price just clapped a bit, and gave a quiet smile that seemed to say, "I know the defense I...

David Price still an ace, and still a Ray

ST. PETERSBURG He wasn't even supposed to be here. David Price was supposed to be on another mound Monday, in another city, on another team.

Rays do well in offseason

Rays do well in offseason

Conventional wisdom held that because David Price is going to be a free agent after this season, the Tampa Bay Rays would have to trade him in the offseason in order to get something rather than nothing for the left-hander in the likelihood he signs elsewhere.The calculus used in the conventional wisdom was wrong. The Rays held onto their ace, and that’s the new smart bet.The Rays are going for it in 2014 — they’re going for it all.

Opening day start a pleasant surprise for Rays' Price

ST. PETERSBURG — Taking the mound on opening day always will be special for LHP David Price. But it's even more so this year because he didn't expect to be wearing a Rays uniform again.

Rays vs. Orioles GDT: Rays! On Sun Sports! Tonight!

David Price takes on a split squad Orioles team. Oh boy. Anyone else sick? I'm sick. Bleh. To keep with tradition, here's a look at David Price's Spring Training stats entering tonight's game: Player ERA IP H R ER HR BB SO HB GO AO K% BB% Price, D 2.7 13.1 7 4 4 1 2 15 3 13 12 29% 4% In short: He's been pretty great. It's kinda exciting because his walk rate has been trading down for years now, and he's so far just about matched his absurd 3.7% walk rate from 2013. I'm excited! That being said: I'm not sure if Price is even the best pitcher in the rotation right now. I think Alex...

A Closer Look At Matt Moore’s Shiny, New Windup

Last season we wondered when the Rays would start to simplify Matt Moore’s delivery as they had previously done with David Price with much success. Turns out the answer was “very soon,” as in the 2014 season. The new windup is not nearly as simplified as Price’s has become. But [...]
