Dodgers manager Dave Roberts expects LHP David Price (arm) to avoid a trip to the injured list.
However, it's unclear when his next appearance will take place. Price isn't a recommended fantasy option this season.
The Dodgers have scratched pitcher David Price from his scheduled start on Saturday. No reason was given. Corey Knebel will start in Price’s place.
Price is 4-2 with a 3.82 ERA, 1.34 WHIP, and .267 OBA through 32 outings (11 starts) this year. He has walked 18 batters and struck out 54 along the way. It’s possible that Price will work out of the bullpen on Saturday, and there’s no indication that he’s injured.
LHP David Price took the loss on Sunday when he allowed three runs on three hits with two walks and four strikeouts over four innings as the Dodgers lost to the Mets 7-2.
The Mets jumped on Price in the first inning, putting up three runs. He settled in after that and worked three more scoreless innings but the damage was done as the Dodgers only scored two runs themselves. Price has a 3.82 ERA, 1.34 WHIP, and 54:18 K/BB ratio over 63 2/3 innings (32 appearances, 11 starts). He'll get another crack at things in his next turn against the Rockies at home.
LHP David Price took a no-decision on Tuesday when he allowed two runs on three hits with one walk and three strikeouts across 4 2/3 innings in the Dodgers' 4-3 win over the Pirates on Tuesday.
Price did his job on Tuesday. He didn't necessarily pitch well but he held the Pirates in check by only surrendering a pair of runs via a Bryan Reynolds double and a Jacob Stallings RBI fielder's choice. Price holds little fantasy value in his current role as he rarely goes deep enough in games to factor into the decision. He's also just not as effective as he once was so there's minimal upside here. Overall, he owns a 3.62 ERA and 1.34 WHIP with 50 strikeouts over 59 2/3 innings.
LHP David Price took a no-decision on Wednesday when he allowed two runs on five hits with one walk and one strikeout in the Dodgers' 8-2 win over the Phillies.
Price allowed a pair of runs via a Ronald Torreyes RBI single in the bottom of the fourth inning, which tied the ball game. Price hasn't pitched into the sixth inning once this whole season and rarely goes deep enough to qualify for wins so he doesn't have much fantasy value. He now has a 3.60 ERA, 1.38 WHIP, and 47:15 K/BB ratio over 55 innings (30 appearances, nine starts). He'll get the Mets on the road in his next turn.
