David Price to pitch in relief Saturday

Oct 1, 2010, 8:25 PM EST

Craig informed us early this morning that Rays manager Joe Maddon was thinking about starting David Price on Saturday against the Royals. Not so. It turns out that Price is expected to pitch two innings in relief, according to Marc Topkin of the St. Petersburg Times.

Either Jeremy Hellickson or Andy Sonnanstine are set to start the ballgame. An official announcement won’t be made until after tonight’s game, according to the Tampa Tribune.

Price’s appearance was going to be pretty brief, anyway — just a mere tune-up for Game 1 of the ALDS next Wednesday — so it doesn’t really matter if he starts the game or not. Of course, there’s still the outside chance that Price could walk away from the game with his 20th win. You know, if you’re into that sort of thing.

    If he starts, he can’t get his 20th win, but if he relieves at the right time, he could get it. This should weigh heavily on the Cy Young voters. Of course, Cy Young would have pitched every game this weekend and batting practice, then started games 1,3,and 5 of the series. Funny but he never won the Cy Young Award.
