David Price improved to 18-5 on the season despite a less than memorable performance. Price went five innings, allowing five runs (four earned)on six hits, while striking out six. The win also secured the Jays at least a spot in the wild card game, which would mark the Jays first appearance in the postseason since 1993, ending a 21 year drought.

Fantasy Impact: Regardless of the shaky outing, Price still holds an 18-5 record with a stellar 2.45 ERA, 1.08 WHIP, and 225 strikeouts in 220 1/3 innings pitched. With Price set to hit the open market this winter, it's unclear where he will wind up, however one thing is clear is that Price will continue to be one of the best pitchers in baseball.

David Price dominates in debut

Mon, Aug 3rd 8:12pm EDT
By Marc Walton

David Price announced his presence with authority Monday, pitching eight innings, allowing one run on three hits while striking out 11. The only run the Twins managed was a second inning home run by Torii Hunter. Price ran into a bit of trouble in the fourth inning when he gave up a leadoff double to Trevor Plouffe, followed by back-to-back walks to load the bases. Price however bore down and retired the next three batters to escape the inning unscathed. Price would retire the next 15 batters in a row en route to his first win as a Blue Jay.

Fantasy Impact: From a pure numbers standpoint, there shouldn't be much of a change between his numbers with the Tigers and with the Blue Jays, other than the possibility of more wins behind baseball's best offensive lineup. Price is moving to a more hitter friendly ballpark, however he is unbeaten at the Rogers Centre in his career, and will look to carry that throughout the season.

Fantasy Impact: This is a huge addition for the Blue Jays, who already added All-Star SS Troy Tulowitzki. The team's offense was never in question, but Price will bolster a unit that was sorely lacking at the top of the rotation. He heads to a hitter's park, but he will also see increased run support from the Jays.

Fantasy Impact: The market for top-end pitching is now a two man show with Price joining Cole Hamels on the block. The 29-year-old southpaw has an ERA of 2.53 this season and will be highly sought after with multiple teams looking to bolster their rotation for a playoff push. It's too early to know where he'll land, but some potential locations that have been rumored are the Dodgers, Yankees and Blue Jays.

Fantasy Impact: The Tampa Bay Rays weren't able to reach an extension with Price, resulting in his trade to the Tigers. Price is expected to play his contract out this year and likely hit it big on the free agent market, especially if he's able to continue his strong season.

Ace David Price couldn't save the Tigers from getting swept by the Angels. He had command most the night but gave up 8 hits and 4 runs over the 7.2 innings. He left 2 on in the eighth but Joba Chamberlain couldn't hold them.

Fantasy Impact: Price is still elite. When the Tigers hit the West coast their bats go cold. Don't write them off yet...but they're currently in third place. Expect GM Dave Dombrowski to start peeking at the bottom of the NL standings for arms.

The lefty ace left after stepping on a bat in the seventh inning. Price pulled up and looked to his right hamstring. Equally concerning is his performance. He gave up 4 runs on 13 hits and only struck out 1. The Tigers would win in a dramatic ninth.

Fantasy Impact: Price and the Tigers will know more Saturday after some tests. He has only been on the DL once in his career, and is hopeful to make his next start.

The outing dropped Price's ERA to 2.93 with a 1.10 WHIP and 32/10 K/BB ratio over 40 innings pitched. Price will try to pitch another solid outing in his next game, also against the Royals.

Fantasy Impact: Tigers ace Price hasn't gotten off to the best of starts this season, but he should be just fine in the long run. He currently has a 3.48 ERA, a 1.26 WHIP, has accumulated 29 strikeouts, while 10 batters have been walked to go along with two wins and one loss in 31 innings pitched to start the year. Continue to start him and expect him to return to his true form in the near future.

Tiger fans braving the chilly night and flurries didn't get much warmer as the Yankees sent 11 batters to the plate in the first inning and scored 6 runs before the Tigers had a chance to retaliate. Price totaled 2.1 innings, 8 earned runs, 3 walks and only 2 Ks. Price didn't make any excuses about the weather after the game. "I don't care how I feel or what the stuff feels like. I have to be able to go out there and get outs," Price said. "That's what pitchers do. That's what the great pitchers do. That's what I did not do today, and that was the result."

Fantasy Impact: There is no reason to panic, Price owners. He is an ace and will bounce back. He is scheduled to face the Twins in Minnesota for his next start. A team he dominated for 8.2 innings and 5 Ks on Opening Day.

The Tigers got the win thanks to their bats. Price didn't do himself any favors by throwing a potentially inning-ending double play in the dirt during the 9-6 win. He received an error. The Indians would go on to score three unearned runs that inning. Price has yet to concede an earned run.

Fantasy Impact: Price was decent, but not his usual dominant self. He struck out six, but also walked three, including a four pitch walk to the nine hitter, Jose Ramirez.

Detroit buzzed as the southpaw was masterful on the mound in a 4-0 victory.Two singles with two outs in the ninth forced coach Brad Ausmus to pull Price before he could go wire-to-wire. A great performance for Price's first Opening Day in Detroit.

Fantasy Impact: He finished with 8.2 IP, 5 hits, 0 ER and 5 Ks and was never really in trouble. He earned 17.33 points for those that rolled the dice with him on Fanduel and 30.5 on DraftKings. A great start for those that plugged him in the lineup, even at his high...price.

The Tigers would hate to lose another ace arm like Max Scherzer to free agency. It only makes sense the Tigers would do everything in their power to lock up Price long term. The recent talks, however, are just preliminary. (Source: Chris McCosky, The Detroit News)

Fantasy Impact: The Tigers named Price their Opening Day starter. He has been happy in Detroit thus far, and is expected to put up great fantasy numbers in his first full season with the Tigers.

Price has been the best pitcher for the Tigers' this spring. He leads the spring with 17 strikeouts in only 12 1/3 innings. His competition, Justin Verlander, has been struggling to find his dominant stuff. (Source: Anthony Fenech)

Fantasy Impact: It is arguable he is a top 5 fantasy pitcher after Clayton Kershaw, Max Scherzer and Felix Hernandez. There will be plenty of run support with a healthy Miguel Cabrera and Victor Martinez. He is a free agent after 2015 and should turn in some incredible numbers this year.


David Price allowed four runs in two innings of work against the Washington Nationals on Wednesday.

Fantasy Impact: For someone who showed great control last year, it's a bit surprising to see Price walk two batters and throw a wild pitch. The Tigers are counting on Price to be their ace this year, so hopefully he was just a bit off this game and will get back to his normal ways by Opening Day.
