Line of the Day: May 5th, 2011

SP David Price of the Tampa Bay Rays allowed four hits and struck out 10 in 8 2/3 innings in a 3-1 victory over the Toronto Blue Jays. Price is now 8-0 with a 1.99 ERA and a 1.01 WHIP in nine career starts against the Blue Jays.

Line: 8.2 IP, 4 H, 0 ER, 0 BB, 10 K; W, QS

My fantasy perspective: Price continues to show why he's a serious threat to win a Cy Young Award sooner than later and fantasy owners who invested early (69.5 ESPN ADP; 57.8 Yahoo! ADP) in him as their fantasy ace. Price is only 4-3 this season but has a decision in all seven games started, pitching at least six innings in six of those starts. He's sporting a nice 40:9 K:BB ratio to go along with his 3.26 ERA and1.13 WHIP. The biggest concern to have is whether the Rays will produce enough offense this season (3.54 Run Support) to have him continue to factor into decisions.

  1. Excellent. You can't not keep David Price. He's as solid as they come.
