Detroit Tigers - 50% owned

(?)
Bats: L, Throws: L

David Price threw six and two-thirds of nine hit, one run ball against Cleveland on Tuesday. He struck out seven without walking a single batter.

Fantasy Impact: The Tigers ace was pulled after throwing 114 pitches, 80 of them for strikes. Cleveland hitters were able to square up enough of his pitches to do some damage, but Price was able to consistently get out of jams throughout the night at kept the opposing hitters off the board. He'll get his next start against the White Sox on Sunday afternoon in Detroit.

David Price went five innings giving up two runs. He surrendered five base runners (four hits and a walk) with six strikeouts. The rain delay served to take him out earlier than he was likely to have gone.

Fantasy Impact: David Price is an elite SP and should be started in virtually all leagues.

David Price was fantastic on Saturday in Chicago, going all nine innings to earn his fifth win of the season. He allowed five hits, one run, and two walks while striking out 11 batters.

Fantasy Impact: It was Price's second highest strikeout total of the season, and his second complete game of the season. His next start will be on Friday in Cleveland.

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.

David Price went the distance on Saturday, pitching a complete game while allowing five hits and one run in a 2-1 win against the Royals.

Fantasy Impact: Price almost got the shutout, as the only run the Royals managed to score was off a solo shot by Lorenzo Cain in the ninth inning. Although he put in a terrific performance, Price only managed to punch out three batters (while walking none), although the Royals as a team do not strike out as often as some teams. 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.

In Detroit's 5-4 win on Monday over Minnesota, David Price gave up three earned runs, walked two batters and gave up six hits, while he struck out seven batters in 6.1 innings pitched.

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.
