Date:

David Price was hit hard in Saturday's no-decision against the Yankees, allowing five runs on nine hits in his six frames.

He did help fantasy owners out at least by punching out seven on the afternoon without issuing a walk. The Yankees jumped on him with three runs in the third inning, including a two-run bomb off the bat of Gary Sanchez. Price now sports a disappointing 3.91 ERA and 1.18 WHIP on the season. He'll look to get back in the win column when he does battle against the Orioles in Baltimore on Thursday.
Sep 17 - 4:50 PM

David Price struck out nine while permitting only two hits and two runs over eight superb innings in Monday's 12-2 win over the Orioles.

Unfortunately for Price, both of the base knocks he allowed left the yard, as Chris Davis and Manny Machado took him deep. That was it, though, as he didn't walk anyone and needed just 98 pitches to cruise through his eight brilliant frames. Price hasn't given up more than two runs in any of his last six outings, dropping his ERA from 4.29 to 3.81 over that time. He'll carry a 16-8 record into this weekend's matchup against the Yankees at Fenway.
Sep 12 - 10:21 PM

David Price picked up his 15th win after holding the Padres to two runs in seven innings on Wednesday.

Price struck out eight and walked none. Price reached 200 strikeouts for the fifth time in six seasons. He's won six straight starts, amassing a 2.14 ERA during the span.
Sep 8 - 12:39 AM

David Price notched his 14th win with seven innings of two-run ball Friday against the A's.

This makes five straight quality starts and five straight victories for Price. He's lowered his ERA from 4.34 to 3.93 during the span. As odd as his season has been, he does seem to be peaking at the right time.
Sep 3 - 2:36 AM

David Price pitched well in Saturday's victory over the Royals, allowing two runs on five hits over six strong innings.

The veteran southpaw racked up seven strikeouts on the evening while issuing only two free passes. All of the damage against him came in the second inning which featured a solo homer from Salvador Perez and an RBI double from Alcides Escobar. Price earned his 13th victory of the season, but still sports a disappointing 3.97 ERA and 1.23 WHIP. He'll do battle next against the Athletics in Oakland on Friday.
Aug 27 - 10:23 PM

David Price shut down his former team on Monday, twirling eight shutout innings while striking out eight in a 6-0 win over the Rays.

Price walked two batters and gave up only two hits, as the Rays never reached second base while he was in the game. He did need some help in his final inning, as Andrew Benintendi made an incredible two-run homer-robbing catch against Steven Souza. Price has surrendered only one run and six hits over his last 14 innings to drop his ERA to 4.00, which is the lowest it's been since Opening Day. He'll take on the Royals over the weekend.
Aug 22 - 11:01 PM

David Price was credited with a complete game after limiting the Orioles to one run in six innings in Boston's rain-shortened win Wednesday.

Price had a nice 8-1 cushion when the game was called. Still, he probably wasn't going nine tonight, regardless of the rain; he was at 84 pitches through six innings. Price has won back-to-back starts for the first time since May. He's 11-8 with a 4.19 ERA.
Aug 17 - 10:59 PM

David Price pitched well in Friday's victory over the Diamondbacks, allowing three runs on 10 hits over his eight innings of work.

The hard-throwing southpaw racked up eight strikeouts on the evening while issuing just one walk. The Red Sox offense staked him to eight early runs, so Price was simply on cruise-control the majority of the evening, throwing strikes and making sure the D'Backs didn't mount a major rally. Now 10-8 on the year, he'll bring a 4.30 ERA and 1.28 WHIP into Thursday's start against the Tigers in Detroit.
Aug 12 - 10:06 PM

David Price struggled in Sunday night's loss to the Dodgers, surrendering six runs (three earned) on six hits over his five innings.

Price had difficulty commanding his fastball, issuing five walks while striking out three in the contest. He kept the Dodgers off the board through the first three innings, but their offense awoke with three runs in the fourth including a solo shot from Justin Turner. They tacked on three unearned runs in the fifth inning, ending Price's night. He'll head into Saturday's start against the Diamondbacks with a disappointing 4.34 ERA and 1.28 WHIP.
Aug 7 - 10:37 PM

David Price surrendered four runs -- all in the eighth inning -- in Tuesday's 5-4 loss to the Mariners.

Well that really escalated quickly. Price allowed just three hits and no runs through his first seven innings of work. The eighth inning proved to be a house of horrors for the ace southpaw, though, as the Mariners opened the frame with four consecutive hits, scoring two runs in the process. Price would cede the mound to new Red Sox bullpen arm Fernando Abad with two runners on. Abad would go on to serve up a mammoth three-run home run to Robinson Cano, depriving Price of the win. What started out as a vintage Price performance ended on a decidedly sour note. He will try to shake off Tuesday's late night blues when he brings his 4.30 ERA, 1.25 WHIP and 156/31 K/BB ratio (150 2/3 innings) into a road date with the Dodgers next time out.
Aug 3 - 12:47 AM

David Price was superb in earning a no-decision in Thursday's 2-1 loss to the Angels, rolling through eight shutout frames while scattering seven singles.

Manager John Farrell is probably second-guessing himself tonight, at least just a little bit. Price had thrown 109 pitches through eight innings and could have theoretically at least started the ninth, but Farrell turned to Brad Ziegler instead. The reliever subsequently blew the save as Price lost out on what would have been a smooth 1-0 win. Tumultuous end aside, this was a strong effort from the ace southpaw. He will bring a 4.26 ERA -- plus a 1.26 WHIP and 151/31 K/BB ratio (143 2/3 innings) -- into a road date with the Mariners next time he toes the rubber.
Jul 29 - 1:25 AM

David Price yielded 11 hits and five runs over 5 2/3 innings Saturday against the Twins.

It was the second straight start Price has allowed 11 hits and the sixth time in his last seven outings that he's given up eight or more hits in a game. Of course, in three of those he also struck out 10 batters, and one was an eight-inning, four-hit gem. Thus is the ballad of David Price -- you take the bad with the good this year. It all adds up to a 4.51 ERA, 1.28 WHIP and 145/30 K/BB ratio. Price will look for better days Thursday at the Angels.
Jul 24 - 12:40 AM

David Price struggled in Sunday night's loss to the Yankees, surrendering three runs on 11 hits in his 5 2/3 frames.

Price walked one and only recorded one strikeout on the night. All of the damage occurred during an uprising in the fourth inning, with run-scoring hits from Starlin Castro, Austin Romine and Jacoby Ellsbury. Price will look to improve upon his disappointing 4.36 ERA and 1.23 WHIP when he does battle against the Twins at home on Saturday.
Jul 17 - 11:18 PM

David Price was phenomenal in Sunday's 4-0 defeat of the Rays, striking out 10 over eight shutout innings.

Price scattered four hits and walked just one on the afternoon. He finished out his eight innings of work having thrown 113 pitches (78 strikes). While he still holds a slightly inflated 4.34 ERA and 1.27 WHIP, there are legitimate signs that Price might be shaking out of his first-half slumbers. He has now notched double-digit strikeouts in four of his last six outings -- and each of his last three starts. He holds a 140/27 K/BB ratio across 124 1/3 innings. Any buy-low window that existed during Price's early-season scuffles is rapidly closing at this point.
