Line of the Day: May 27th, 2011

SP David Price of the Tampa Bay Rays allowed no runs, four hits and walked two while striking out a career-high 12 over seven innings in a 5-0 win over the Cleveland Indians. Price is now 4-1 with a 2.01 ERA in five career starts against the Indians.

Line: 7 IP, 4 H, 0 ER, 2 BB, 12 K; W, QS

My fantasy perspective: Price is posting career lows in WHIP (1.06) and BB/9 (1.53), combine that with an 8.02 K/9 and his K/BB ratio comes out to 5.23, good for second-best in the AL and fourth-best in the majors.

Price was the 16th-drafted starting pitcher on ESPN this offseason with an ADP of 69.5 and is currently the 20th-ranked starter and 56th-ranked player overall on ESPN's Player Rater. Owners who invested in Price are getting the expected value in return already and can expect more of the same for years to come.
