Tigers | David Price beginning contract talks?

Wed, 25 Mar 2015 10:04:35 -0700

Detroit Tigers SP David Price and his agent have started contract talks with the team, but no numbers have been discussed at this point.

Fantasy Tip: Price will start on opening day against the Minnesota Twins. Even at a high FantasyScore salary ($8,100, 16.2% of cap), the matchup against the Twins is favorable and one you should look to take advantage of.

Tigers | David Price improved curve ball

Mon, 09 Mar 2015 11:41:35 -0700

Detroit Tigers SP David Price allowed nine home runs and a .720 OPS on his curve ball in the last two seasons after dominating with his curve as recently as 2012. As a result, Price's curve-ball usage dropped to a career-low 5.6% in 2014, down from 11.5% in 2013. Price worked on the pitch in the offseason, and he feels he has improved it. A new grip on the pitch has allowed Price to have better command and throw it at varying speeds. "I understood it when I was out there on the mound, what I needed to do: attacking different hitters and changing speeds, being able to do stuff that way. Trying to get that ground ball when I needed that ground ball. And just understanding different situations on the mound. I feel like I've taken big steps in all those categories. And it makes pitching so much easier," Price said.

Fantasy Tip: You can't go wrong selecting Price as your fantasy ace in the early rounds of drafts. The news about his curve ball is particularly encouraging, as well, and makes an investment in him even more sound.

Tigers | David Price has not had extension talks

Sat, 07 Mar 2015 07:52:17 -0800

Detroit Tigers SP David Price said he has not had any contract extension talks with the Tigers at this point but is willing to discuss an extension during the season. Price continues to say he is willing to sign a long-term deal with the Tigers.

Fantasy Tip: Price is open to talking during the season, so negotiations between the two sides could linger for a long time. Price has been one of the better fantasy pitchers over the last few seasons and should be one again this season. He should be selected in one of the early rounds in drafts as a No. 1 or No. 2 starting pitcher.

Tigers | David Price debuts new curveball

Fri, 06 Mar 2015 12:40:48 -0800

Detroit Tigers SP David Price debuted his new curveball grip Friday, March 6. He learned the pitch from Oakland Athletics SP Sonny Gray while training this offseason at Vanderbilt University.

Fantasy Tip: Last season, Gray's curveball (16.9 runs above average) was the third best in baseball, according to FanGraphs.com. While Price still ranked 21st in the league, any improvements in his arsenal only helps his already high-end fantasy stock. Price's five-year averages go to the tune of 15 wins, 3.08 ERA, 1.12 WHIP with 207 strikeouts. In his age-29 season, expect more of the same from Price, and he is a viable fantasy ace to build your fake rotation around.

Tigers | David Price may negotiate during season

Sun, 22 Feb 2015 09:04:06 -0800

Detroit Tigers SP David Price said he is open to negotiating a contract extension after opening day but would want the talks to slow down at that point.

Fantasy Tip: Price will be a free agent after the season, so the Tigers will try to sign him to a long-term deal. Price pitched well last season and has struck out at least 200 batters in three of the last six seasons. Price probably will be selected in one of the early rounds of drafts this year.

Cardinals | St. Louis looking at frontline pitchers

Thu, 08 Jan 2015 05:14:46 -0800

Philadelphia Phillies SP Cole Hamels and Detroit Tigers SP David Price are drawing trade interest from the St. Louis Cardinals. The Cardinals are also interested in free-agent SP Max Scherzer (Tigers). The team prefers to grab a left-handed starter like Hamels or Price, but Scherzer interests them because he's from the area. Hamels doesn't have St. Louis on his no-trade list, and his wife, Heidi, is from the area and all her family is in Missouri, according to the Philadelphia Daily News.
