David Price allowed four runs on seven hits and struck out five over seven innings in a no-decision Tuesday against the Mariners.

Fantasy Impact: While it shows that Price gave up four runs, the bullpen has to shoulder some of the blame for that. Price had a shutout into the eighth inning, but ran into trouble and had the bullpen fall apart and blow the game when they came in. He is coming off of a dominant start last week against the Angels and had a 15-inning scoreless stretch going into the eighth inning on Tuesday. It looks like Price is turning a corner and pitching well again, making him a strong option down the stretch run.

David Price shut the Angels out over eight innings Thursday, allowing seven hits and a walk while striking out six, but he received no decision.

David Price didn't factor into the decision in Saturday's loss to the Twins, giving up five earned runs on 11 hits and two walks over 5.2 innings. He struck out four.

Fantasy Impact: This was not one of Price's better outings as he fell behind early in the count frequently, notching first-pitch strikes on only 13 of 27 hitters and inducing a mere seven swinging strikes. Price continues to be wildly inconsistent, after a dominant start before the All-Star game. He has now given up 11 hits in each of his two starts after the break. Hopefully, Price can right the ship in his next start which will come against the Angels on Thursday.

While he only gave up three runs, New York got to him for 11 hits. Price, who has double figures in strikeouts in four of his last six starts, only had one on Sunday. Price's next start will be on Saturday against the Twins.

David Price struck out 10 batters but took a loss Tuesday, giving up three runs across eight innings against the Rangers.

Fantasy Impact: Price has lost his last three starts, but continues to strike out batters at a high rate, as he has had double figures in strikeouts in three of his last five starts. He leads the AL in that category now, but needs to get his ERA down from its current 4.67 to be an elite fantasy pitcher.

He does lead the AL in strikeouts with 120, but also has a 4.74 ERA with a 1.24 WHIP. His next start is against the Rangers on Tuesday, a team who hit him hard last week. You may want to avoid starting Price in DFS that day.

David Price allowed six runs on 12 hits while striking out one over 2.1 innings, but received no-decision Friday against the Rangers.

Fantasy Impact: Price has been dominant lately but Friday night he struggled against the Rangers. Pitchers normally struggle in Texas against a strong Ranger lineup so this could just be a bad outing. Look for Price to rebound in his next start on Wednesday against the Rays.

David Price loses on Friday

Sat, Jun 4th 3:23pm EDT
By Chris Zolli

David Price allowed three runs (two earned) in seven innings against the Blue Jays on Friday night for his second loss of the season, 7-2. Price walked four batters while striking out five, giving him seven walks in his last two starts, and now has a 3.82 K:BB ratio. He has seen his ERA drop from 7.06 to 4.88 over the last nine starts and will face the Giants on Wednesday.

Fantasy Impact: Price has pitched into the seventh inning in each of his last five starts, with a quality start in each of those five games. He leads the American League in strikeouts with 84 and has a decent 1.24 WHIP, but stil has an ERA near 5. Price has held current Giants' hitters to a .613 OPS in 57 at-bats, but Buster Posey has a solo home run and three hits against Price in seven career at-bats.

David Price allowed two runs on five hits over 6 1/3 innings in earning a no-decision against the Blue Jays on Sunday. It was something of a listless performance from Price, who tied his season low in strikeouts with three.

Fantasy Impact: Price had a rough start to the season but is finally coming around to being the ace that the Red Sox were looking for. For the year, his numbers still don't look very good, but should come down. He has a 5.11 ERA, 1.22 WHIP and 79/18 K/BB ratio over 68 2/3 innings.

David Price (5-1) notched the victory in the night half of Wednesday's doubleheader against Kansas City behind 7.1 strong innings. He allowed just five hits and two runs while striking out five with one walk.

Fantasy Impact: This was a solid outing for Price and it follows up his gem against the Astros in his last start when he struck out 12. Price had made some adjustments to his delivery and his last two starts have been more of the David Price we are used too. Hopefully this consistency continues and the buy low window on Price could be closing.

David Price (5-1) dominated the Astros over 6.2 innings in Thursday's 11-1 rout, allowing just one run on six hits and a walk while striking out 12.

Fantasy Impact: This pitching performance will help to ease the concern of David Price fantasy owners. Price has been very inconsistent this season and in eight starts, he's had four strong ones (two or fewer runs, nine or more strikeouts) and four forgettable ones of five-plus runs. Price needs to string a few more dominant efforts together to help get him back into the elite of fantasy pitchers.

David Price, through the assistance of teammate Dustin Pedroia, is working on a fix to his mechanics that could be part of the reason the left-hander is off to such a poor start this season, the Providence Journal reports. Pedroia noticed Price's hands weren't in sync with his front leg, something that was part of the left-hander's delivery in the past. "I want my hands and my right knee to be connected by a string," Price said Sunday. "My hands have stayed right here, and that's not allowing me to get my full leg lift. It's been about a half of what I'm used to. It gives me no margin of error because I don't have that rhythm." (Source: Providence Journal)

Fantasy Impact: Hopefully, the mechanics fix will help David Price's velocity. His fastball has been sitting at 92 mph, which is three miles per hour less than normal. Price currently has a 6.75 ERA on the season and he is only going to get better. This is a good time for fantasy owners to buy low on Price.


Red Sox manager John Farrell confirmed that David Price is healthy. Price has been getting rocked this year and his velocity is way down. He topped out at 93 mph on Saturday en route to allowing six runs in only 4 2/3 innings as the Red Sox lost to the Yankees. (Source: Evan Dreillich on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Price now has a 6.75 ERA after seven starts and is fortunate to have a 4-1 record on the season. He does have a solid strikeout rate as he now has 53 over 43 innings. If Price isn't injured like John Farrell says then expect the starting pitcher to heat up as he has never been a cold weather pitcher and is adapting to playing in a major media market. This could be a good buy low for fantasy owners.

Fantasy Impact: David Price is 4-0 in six starts, but he has been wildly inconsistent this season. He has mixed in some dominant performances with some duds as his 6.12 ERA on the season shows.

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.

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.
