    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…

  2. Cole Hamels is 1-8

    May 26, 2013, 9:05 PM EDT

    Cole Hamels

    Phillies starter Cole Hamels lost his eighth game this afternoon as he was vastly out-dueled by Nationals starter Stephen Strasburg in the Nats’ 6-1 victory. Hamels allowed five runs (three earned) in 6.1 innings, striking out six and walking one as his ERA was actually lowered to 4.43. The first two months for Hamels have…

    Rays left-hander David Price is eligible to return from the disabled list on Friday. But that will not happen. According to Roger Mooney of the Tampa Tribune, Price is beginning to feel better but has not begun a throwing program and is still at least a couple weeks away from stepping back atop a mound.…

    The Rays confirmed late Saturday that 23-year-old right-hander Jake Odorizzi, who was acquired from the Royals this winter in the James Shields trade, will make his debut for Tampa Bay in Monday afternoon’s series opener against the Blue Jays. This from Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times. Odorizzi is filling for staff ace David…

    SiriusXM All-Star Futures Game

    Mark Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times says that although the Rays haven’t announced anything officially, prospect Jake Odorizzi is likely to replace the injured David Price in the starting rotation. The Rays placed their defending AL Cy Young award winner on the disabled list yesterday with a strained left triceps muscle, an injury they…

  6. 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…

    Seattle Mariners v New York Yankees

    Mariners 12, Yankees 2: This one was over almost before it started, with Phil Hughes getting knocked around for seven runs in the first inning, which he did not escape. Raul Ibanez hit two homers and drove in six off his old team. Which, I imagine, will cause some columnist who has been lauding Brian…

  8. David Price leaves start with strained left triceps

    A frightening development tonight for Tampa Bay. Rays left-hander David Price made an early exit from his start against the Red Sox after feeling some discomfort in his left triceps muscle. He appeared to be clenching his fist when a trainer came out to visit him, which suggests that there might have been pain shooting…

  9. Joe Maddon is not worried about angry umps

    The Rays have had a lot of run-ins with the umpires this season. David Price and that whole deal with Tom Hallion. Joe Maddon’s multiple ejections. But Maddon tells Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times that he’s not worried about retaliation or getting boned on future calls: “You only get a bad reputation if…

  10. Umpire Tom Hallion, tweeting Rays players to be fined

    May 2, 2013, 10:30 AM EDT

    Tom Hallion

    That weird deal from last weekend in which David Price said umpire Tom Hallion shouted expletives at him and Hallion accused Price of lying? And then the Rays players jumped on Twitter to defend their teammate and talk smack about Hallion? Well, it’s ending with fines all around: Umpire Tom Hallion, tweeting #Rays players (Price,…

  11. Rays players, umpire Tom Hallion all facing possible discipline over yesterday’s kerfuffle

    Apr 29, 2013, 4:00 PM EDT

    Tom Hallion

    The stuff yesterday with David Price and Tom Hallion was pretty messed up. Someone there is lying, yes? Either Tom Hallion told Price to “throw the ball over the f-in plate” or he didn’t. If he did, he’s now lying about it and taking a step further by calling Price a liar.  If he didn’t,…

    My weekend: a quickie trip to Detroit where I saw my Braves look pathetic on Saturday afternoon. But bad baseball is better than good nothin’, so it was a fine weekend.  Here’s what else went down: This has nothing to do with baseball, but holy crap this is a detailed article about the Magnum T.A.-Tully…

    Russell Martin

    Pirates 9, Cardinals 0: Two homers for Russell Martin and a strong start from Jeff Locke. The Pirates — the Pittsburgh Pirates — are in first place in the National League Central. This goes with the Royals being in first place in the AL Central. I predicted each of these teams would be better this…

  14. David Price is not happy with umpire Tom Hallion

    David Price

    Rays lefty David Price held the White Sox to three runs over seven innings en route to an 8-3 victory, his first of the season, but Price was furious thanks to umpire Tom Hallion. Walking towards the dugout after the seventh, Price said a few choice words to Hallion before leaving. Shortly thereafter, Hallion appeared…

    Texas Rangers v Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim

    Angels 5, Rangers 4: Howie Kendrick with two homers, including the walkoff in the 11th. Kendrick after the game: “It’s a great feeling to know that you can leave the other team on the field” I hope someone brings the Rangers some food overnight. Maybe go back to their hotel, get guys a change of…

  16. Still too early to worry about faltering aces

    Toronto Blue Jays' starting pitcher Dickey throws against the Boston Red Sox during the first inning of their MLB American League baseball game in Toronto

    The ERA leaderboard, organized greatest to least, is a bit of a shocker. At the top you’ll find both of the defending Cy Young award winners (David Price and R.A. Dickey), as well as Cole Hamels, Matt Cain, and Stephen Strasburg, among others. You’ll hear this a lot but it bears repeating: it’s still very…

    Country Breakfast

    Royals 9, Phillies 8: Country. Breakfast. Billy Butler drives in seven via a grand slam and a three-run double. The loss is an especially disheartening one for Philly, as they were staked to a 4-0 lead early with their ace on the hill. Cole Hamels was rocked, though, and now stands at 0-2 with a 10.97 ERA…

  20. Rays name David Price as Opening Day starter

    Mar 12, 2013, 1:20 PM EDT

    David Price

    Tampa Bay officially named David Price as the Opening Day starter, which is no surprise. James Shields got the Opening Day nod for the Rays last season, but Price went 20-5 with a 2.56 ERA on the way to his first Cy Young award and presumably would have gotten the call this year even if…

    David Price

    In a column posted at ESPN yesterday, Jayson Stark goes over some future possibilities for Rays ace and defending AL Cy Young award winner David Price.

    David Price backtracks on his comments yesterday that he wouldn’t play for the Yankees because of their rule against beards: “It probably wasn’t the best thing to say, but I didn’t mean anything by it,” Price said. “I wasn’t looking to offend the Yankees. It’s probably the best organization in all of sports. Not just baseball,…

    New York Yankees Photo Day

    David Price won’t sign with the Yankees if it means shaving his beard? Please. The Captain knows what time it is. From Mark Feinsand of the Daily News: “Do you really think some player would say no, all things considered, if it was a good deal for them? I’m not talking about his situation, but…

    “Is Caitlin ready, Mr. Stevenson? Our reservation is at 7.” [Mr. Stevenson cocks shotgun, Mrs. Stevenson faints]   David Price told Jon Morosi that he wouldn’t sign a long term contract with the Yankees due to their draconian facial hair rules. If they do have draconian facial hair rules, it’s only because they have to…

    This will probably set talk radio and the tabloids afire for a day or so, even if it’s pretty meaningless. Here’s David Price, talking to Jon Paul Morosi about the possibility of him being traded by the Rays this year because of approaching free agency: “If I ever did hit that free-agent market, there would…
