David Price SP DET 1 Month

Price (12-9) took a tough-luck loss to his old Rays mates Thursday, going eight innings and allowing just an unearned run on one hit and nine strikeouts.

Price was about as good as you can be, but a first-inning error and then the lone hit he allowed -- an RBI triple by Brandon Guyer -- were all that Alex Cob and the Rays needed. Following that first-inning run, Price tossed seven perfect innings, but it wasn't enough. Now just 1-1 in four starts as a Tiger, Price will have to hope for more offensive support when he faces the Yankees on Wednesday.

Price went six innings Sunday against the Blue Jays, allowing four runs on five hits and an unusually high (for him) three walks.

Price was staked to a 5-0 lead in this game heading into the sixth inning, but gave up two runs on a Dioner Navarro homer in the sixth and faced two batters in the seventh, both of whom came around to score. He was still in line for a win despite that, but Joba Chamberlain blew the save in the ninth.

Price was dealing in a no-decision Tuesday, fanning 10 while giving up three runs on eight hits in 8.2 innings against the Yankees. He didn't issue a free pass.

The icing on the cake would have been his 12th win of the season, but the Tigers weren't able to break through for a 4-3 win until the 12th inning. The southpaw hasn't won in two starts with Detroit since coming over from Tampa at the trade deadline, but he's racked up a 2:16 BB:K in 15.2 innings thus far and will have another shot at a W when he faces the Blue Jays on Sunday.

Making what could be his final start for the Rays, David Price was charged with four runs -- three earned -- over seven frames in a loss to the Brewers.

Price had a 1-2-3 first inning but surrendered a bases-loaded, two-RBI single to Martin Maldonado in the second and as it turned out that's all the runs Milwaukee needed. The left-hander permitted six hits and two walks while striking out six. Assuming he's not traded before then, Price will take a 3.11 ERA into next week's start in Oakland.

CBS Sports' Jon Heyman was told by a Rays source that the team is "talking and willing" on the David Price trade front.

"[We'll] see if any teams have the desire," the source added. Heyman was told by rival executives that they believe general manager Andrew Friedman "has the guts to deal Price when the team has rallied from nowhere to the cusp of the AL pennant race. A few even suggest that he may prefer to pull the trigger." USA Today's Bob Nightengale has indicated that the Cardinals could have an offer on the table of Oscar Taveras, Shelby Miller and their competitive balance pick in exchange for Price. It appears, however, that the Rays may want even more. FOX Sports' Jon Morosi says that Price is expected to start for the Rays Wednesday afternoon "barring a dramatic turn" in trade talks.

CBS Sports' Jon Heyman reports that the asking price for Rays left-hander David Price is going up.

As a result, it's very likely that the Rays -- who have also won 10 out of 11 to move back into playoff contention -- will keep Price rather than move him before Thursday. "I believe so," said one person familiar with the team's thinking. "Simply put, it will take more than it would have a few weeks back." Heyman was told by rival GM that Price will either be "sold at 200 percent markup or not moved."

David Price struck out 10 batters and yielded three runs over eight innings Friday in a win over the Red Sox.

Price was on the losing side of things before the Rays rallied for four runs in the seventh inning. The red-hot Rays have now won eight straight games, so a Price trade is looking more unlikely by the moment. The southpaw has now gone at least eight innings in eight out of his last nine starts. His ERA went up a tick from 3.06 to 3.08 in the win, but he continues to be money for fantasy owners.

Nick Cafardo of the Boston Globe reports that the Cardinals "would want a financial commitment" from David Price before they agreed to trade for him.

The "financial commitment," presumably, would be in the form of a long-term extension. Price is making $14 million this season and is eligible for arbitration for a final time over the winter before hitting free agency. It's unclear at this point whether the left-hander would consider such an arrangement before being dealt. The Mariners are also interested in Price, and Cafardo says to "don't rule out the Giants."

David Price threw eight shutout innings Saturday in the Rays' 5-1 defeat of the Twins.

Price has now won five straight starts -- a career-best streak for the ace left-hander. He struck out nine Minnesota hitters, walked none, and gave up only four hits. Price moves one day closer to the trade deadline with an outstanding 3.06 ERA, 1.04 WHIP, and 173/21 K/BB ratio in 155 2/3 innings. If he's still with the Rays, he'll get the Red Sox at home next time out.

According to FOX Sports' Jon Morosi, the Mariners are "having ongoing trade discussions" with the Rays about David Price and Ben Zobrist.

Morosi adds that a deal does not appear imminent. Price is the hottest starting pitcher on this year's trade market and is being courted by every contending team with a decent farm system. The 28-year-old left-hander owns a 3.23 ERA and 164/21 K/BB ratio in 147 2/3 innings this season for Tampa Bay. The versatile Zobrist would also make sense for the M's, who are looking to upgrade at multiple positions.
