David Price has been scratched from his scheduled start this afternoon against the Blue Jays. Don’t worry Rays fans, he hasn’t been traded. At least not yet. However, Matt Baker of the Tampa Bay Times reports that the decision was made after he became ill last night and had to leave Tropicana Field.
Jake Odorizzi will move up in the rotation to start this afternoon. The hope is that Price will feel well enough to pitch tomorrow. However, if he does, he likely wouldn’t be able to pitch in the All-Star Game. Price is Tampa Bay’s lone representative for the Midsummer Classic.
Price, 28, owns a 3.42 ERA and 159/19 K/BB ratio over 139 2/3 innings. He has eight straight starts of at least seven innings and three earned runs or fewer allowed.
