With the MLB trade deadline fast approaching the July 31st deadline, the rumors are continuing to be hot and heavy surrounding the future of Rays ace David Price. Many around the game say that Price could have several different landing spots including St. Louis, Los Angeles (Dodgers), and possibly Atlanta.
Price owns a 3.81 ERA, 1.115 WHIP, and 133/13 K/BB ratio in 115 2/3 innings this season for Tampa Bay. The 28-year-old lefty is making $14 million this season and is arbitration-eligible for the final time in 2015. However one Rays analyst told WDAE’s “The Ron And Ian Show” on Monday that he would be shocked if David Price would be traded at all.
“I would be shocked if they traded David (Price) this year,” said Sun Sports analyst Brian Anderson. “I’m not saying they won’t, but if they did that would be one of those days like no way that just happened is how I would feel about it.”
