Price Joins Strong Tigers, Starts Tuesday Vs Yanks – Yahoo Sports

Standard

The left-handed ace joined his new team at Comerica Park read more before Saturday night’s game against Colorado. He’ll be part of a rotation that includes fellow AL Cy Young winners Max Scherzer and Justin Verlander. Star slugger Miguel Cabrera and the division-leading Tigers have won three straight AL Central titles and hoping to win their first World Series title since 1984. ”Walking in the clubhouse today was like an All-Star Game. All the players I’ve seen over the years,” Price said. Price was 11-8 with a 3.11 ERA and topping the majors with 189 strikeouts when the Tigers got him from Tampa Bay on Thursday in a three-team trade that included Seattle. He’ll make his first start for his new team Tuesday night at Yankee Stadium against New York. The 28-year-old Price said he knew there was a good chance Tampa Bay would deal him before the trade deadline. His contract runs out after the MaxWorkout 2015 season, and the fiscally challenged Rays probably wouldn’t re-sign him.
