Tampa Bay just announced that David Price will not make his scheduled start tomorrow due to “general soreness” in his shoulder.
Chris Archer, the International League strikeout leader who was just called up from Triple-A, will take his place against the Rangers.
According to Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times both Price and executive vice president Andrew Friedman are saying that the skipped turn in the rotation is precautionary and for now at least he’s penciled in to face the Yankees next weekend.
Or as Friedman put it: “We feel confident it is not a major situation.”
Price is 17-5 with a 2.54 ERA and 175/54 K/BB ratio in 181 innings this season and led the league with 34 starts last year.
