David Price would consider a long-term extension from the Tigers
It was reported last fall that David Price had trouble adjusting to Detroit. And he’s entering his walk year. Does that mean that Price is sure to walk? Not so fast: he made some noises yesterday about how he’ll be more comfortable with the team having gone through spring training, and suggested a future with them:
It’s a big year for Price. While he tossed a league-leading 248 innings with a 3.26 ERA and league-high 271 strikeouts last year, there was a sense that he underperformed after the trade. If he has a solid season, he’s right back to the top of a stocked free agent pitching market next winter. If he and/or the Tigers falter in the first half of the season, he could be trade bait.
