David Price is suddenly making steady progress.

According to beat writer Joe Smith of the Tampa Bay Times, the ace left-hander played catch for a second straight day this afternoon at Tropicana Field. He made 35 throws Monday morning from 60 feet and then threw another 35 from 65-75 feet on Tuesday, reporting no problems in either workout.

Price was placed on the disabled list May 16 after suffering a left triceps strain in the third inning of his May 15 start vs. Boston. He wound up allowing four runs in that outing and currently owns a 5.24 ERA on the season. The hope is he’ll be able to return in mid-to-late June and begin chipping away at that number.

Price won the American League Cy Young Award in 2012 after posting a 2.56 ERA, 1.10 WHIP and 205/59 K/BB ratio across 211 innings. The 27-year-old owns a 3.29 ERA in over 841 career major league frames.

    Did he play catch with his dog? Because I’m not sure that counts.
