Price held the White Sox to one run on four hits -- an Avisail Garcia solo homer -- over eight innings in a no-decision Friday.

Both Price and Jeff Samardzija kept the opposition in check Friday, but the Tigers scratched out the game-winning run in the ninth inning, preventing Price from earning his second win of the season. Through three starts, he's carrying a 20:5 K:BB with 0.40 ERA and 0.81 WHIP. Price's next start will come Wednesday against the Yankees at home (Adam Warren).

Price was masterful on Opening Day, firing 8.2 shutout innings Monday against the Twins.

Price allowed just five hits in the outing and struck out five. The lefty will look to build off his fine first start this weekend when the Tigers take on the Indians in Cleveland.

Price will start Opening Day for the Tigers, Chris Iott of MLive.com reports.

This comes down to rewarding merit (Price) or tradition (Justin Verlander) for the Tigers. Price was clearly the superior pitcher in 2014, with a 3.26 ERA and league-leading 271 strikeouts, and is likely to be as good in 2015. However, there was also a chance manager Brad Ausmus would want to continue Verlander's seven-year Opening Day start streak.

Price and the Tigers avoided arbitration by agreeing to a one-year, $19.75 million contract Friday, CBS Sports' Jon Heyman reports.

Price's salary is not cheap, but it still makes him a bargain compared to what he will likely fetch on the free agent market next winter. Price was not as sharp with the Tigers as he was with the Rays last season, but he still posted 4.6 WAR over the entire campaign -- the second best mark of his career.

Price will start Game 3 of the ALDS against the Orioles on Sunday, MLive.com reports.

The decision to start Max Scherzer in Thursday's Game 1 was an easy one for manager Brad Ausmus, but there were several conversations about whether to start Justin Verlander or Price in Game 2. Verlander finished strong during the regular season and will thus be rewarded with the start over Price, who posted a 3.59 ERA, 1.15 WHIP and 82:15 K:BB in his 11 starts for Detroit. Price will then go Sunday, with Rick Porcello to follow should the series go to four games.

Price logged 7.1 scoreless innings in Sunday's division-clinching win over Minnesota. He scattered four hits while racking up eight strikeouts.

Price was at his best in this one and his quality start helped Detroit snag the AL Central crown. The left-hander has had a couple shaky starts in September, yet still posted excellent numbers (3.26 ERA, 1.08 WHIP, 271 strikeouts) across 248.1 total innings in the regular season.

Despite tossing 8.2 innings Tuesday, Price came away with a no-decision against the White Sox, giving up three earned runs on eight hits while fanning eight and not issuing a walk.

A walkoff single by Miguel Cabrera in the bottom of the ninth handed the Tigers -- and more specifically, Joe Nathan -- the win after Price gave up a pair of runs in the ninth to allow Chicago to tie things up. Price will get the ball again against Minnesota in the final game of the regular season Sunday in a tilt that could have enormous playoff implications for the current AL East-leading Tigers.

Price (14-12) picked up the loss Wednesday, allowing five runs on eight hits with three walks and five strikeouts over 5.2 innings against the Twins.

Right on cue, Price follows a terrific start with a dud. The left-hander is 3-3 with a 4.12 ERA and a 66:13 K:BB ratio over nine starts for the Tigers. Price will face the White Sox on Tuesday.

Price kept the Indians at bay Friday night, allowing one run on eight hits, he did not walk a batter and struck out seven over 7.2 innings of a 7-2 victory.

It's been an up and down couple of months for Price (14-11, 3.26 ERA) but this was a strong performance as the Tigers battle it out for the division title with Kansas City. He threw 75 of 106 pitches for strikes and will try to keep the momentum going in his next start on the road against the Twins.

Price struck out 11 and walked one while giving up five runs on nine hits over 8.2 innings in a losing effort Saturday against the Giants.

After a four-run first inning, Price settled down and kept the Giants' offense relatively quiet. Unfortunately for Price and the Tigers, Madison Bumgarner and the San Francisco bullpen managed to do just enough to keep Price from spitting the hook. Price is lined up to face Cleveland at home on Friday in his next scheduled start.
