David Price News
Los Angeles Dodgers pitcher David Price struggled as the teams opener on Tuesday versus the St. Louis Cardinals. Price went 1 2/3 innings and allowed five hits, two runs, one walk and struck out three. Price has been operating as the Dodgers opener every fifth day since returning from the injured list on May 17. Price hadn't let up a run since his return until yesterday and has performed well in the role. For fantasy purposes, Price doesn't offer much value with his inability to go deep into games. The veteran can be left on the waiver wire.
Los Angeles Dodgers pitcher David Price will make another start in a bullpen game for the team against the St. Louis Cardinals on Tuesday. This will be Price's third start of the year. He's appeared in a total of 11 games and has a 3.31 ERA and 1.35 WHIP over 16.1 innings. He didn't allow any runs over his four appearances (6.2 innings) in May. He pitched 2.2 scoreless innings in his last outing as an opener against the San Francisco Giants last Thursday. Expect to see him go around two or three innings again on Tuesday.
Los Angeles Dodgers pitcher David Price will operate as the team's opener in Thursday's contest versus the San Francisco Giants. It has been a role that has suited Price well since returning from the injured list on May 17. Price carries a 3.95 ERA with 14 strikeouts in 13 2/3 innings into the matchup, but it's likely Price will only go two or three innings and he should be avoided in DFS. Price should remain on the waiver wire in all formats, but he could be an interesting option if he gets stretched out as a full-time starter.
Left-handed pitcherDavid Price was one of the biggest names to opt-out of the 2020 MLB season, and fantasy managers may have forgotten how intriguing the southpaw's 2019 season was. He went 7-5 with a solid 4.28 ERA and strong 3.73 xFIP over 107 IP for the Red Sox that year. More importantly for our purposes, his K% increased to a career-best 27.9. There were many reasons for the spike, including cutting back on a largely ineffectual cutter and transforming his curve from a mediocre show-me pitch in 2018 (10.3 SwStr%, 13.8% chase rate) to a legitimate strikeout weapon in 2019 (19.1 SwStr%, 46.9% chase rate). The new pitch mix also helped his heater play up, posting an 11.6 SwStr% and 56.8 Zone% in 2019 after marks of 7.2% and 51.8% in 2018. Price was involved in the Mookie Betts swap, meaning that the 35-year-old will have the luxury of the best supporting cast the National League has to offer. There is some risk in selecting an older pitcher who didn't play at all the previous season, but Price is well worth his ADP of 151, assuming he's ready to rock and roll.
