Rays place David Price on the disabled list

David Price has been placed on the disabled list after leaving yesterday’s start with a strained triceps.

To take his spot on the roster the Rays called up left-lander Alex Torres, who’s spent most of the past three seasons at Triple-A throwing 253 innings with a 4.13 ERA and 296/160 K/BB ratio. Torres has big-time stuff and racks up tons of strikeouts, but shaky control has kept him from emerging as a better prospect and he’s already 25 years old.

Price has struggled all season, following up his Cy Young-winning campaign with a 5.24 ERA, but for now at least the Rays seem confident that he’ll only miss 2-3 starts.

    Torres is a bit of a surprise. I figured Archer, and possibly Odorizzi. Torres is the last hope to get any production out of the Kazmir trade,as Sean Rod has flamed out and is a likely non tender candidate this off season.

      Odorizzi’s next scheduled start is slated for Price’s next scheduled start. Expect for a Torres/Odorizzi swap come Sunday.

        Thanks, good info, zach.

    I really hope DP can shake whatever rust he has during this resting period. In the mean time, let’s see what Odorizzi can do.

    Providing that its just the triceps, Price and the Rays dodged a bullet there. I do hope he gets back to Cy Young form when he returns.

    Torres is awesome. Lookout if he can get control

    His tricepts may be hurt, and that hurts the Rays, excep they have depth at pitching.
