David Price News
Los Angeles Dodgers left-hander David Price is not on the roster for the NLCS against the Atlanta Braves, according to the team. Price did make an appearance on the divisional series roster but couldn't get into a game. The veteran had an average season, posting a 4.03 ERA with just 58 strikeouts across 73.2 innings. He was in a relief role most of the season, making just 11 starts. He was a bit better as a starter, pitching to a 3.92 ERA across 41.1 innings. Right-hander Evan Phillips and lefty Justin Bruihl are new additions to the roster that will likely pitch out of the bullpen. Phillips produced a 3.38 ERA in eight appearances, and Bruihl had a 2.89 ERA in 21 games during the regular season.
Los Angeles Dodgers pitcher David Price was added to the team's 26-man roster for the NLDS. Price wasn't part of the team's roster for the Wild Card game against the St. Louis Cardinals. He and starting pitcher Walker Buehler were added to the roster prior to the NLDS while outfielders Zach McKinstry and Luke Raley were optioned to the minors to trim the roster down to 26. Price made 39 appearances (11 starts) for the Dodgers this year and went 5-2 with a 4.03 ERA and a 1.43 WHIP. He'll be a bullpen arm for the team in the NLDS.
Los Angeles Dodgers starting pitcher David Price (arm) has been scratched from Friday's start against the San Francisco Giants. The veteran left-hander will sit this one out while he deals with arm soreness. Right-handed reliever Corey Knebel will be asked to be the opener for this game. It sounds like Price very well could be making a trip to the injured list. Fantasy managers aren't going to get much value out of Price this season. Knebel won't be worth the gamble for streaming purposes on Friday.
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.
