David Price Biography
Tampa Rays phenom, David Price was born August 26, 1985 in Murfreesboro, Tennessee. He is an American left-handed Major League Baseball starting pitcher for the Tampa Bay Rays. The Rays selected him first overall in the 2007 Major League Baseball Draft.
According to Baseball America, Price's bonus is the second-largest in draft history, behind only the $6.1 million Justin Upton received from the Arizona Diamondbacks as the top overall pick in the 2005 Major League Baseball Draft. The guaranteed value is the third-highest in draft history, trailing only Mark Prior ($10.5 million, Cubs) and Mark Teixeira ($9.5 million, Rangers) from the 2001 draft. He made his spring training debut against the New York Yankees, hitting the first batter and striking out the next three in one inning of work. His fastball averaged 98 mph.
Price made his major league debut with the Tampa Bay Rays on September 14, 2008, against the New York Yankees. He came in for 5⅓ innings of relief; he made his first major league start with the Tampa Bay Rays on September 22, 2008 against the Baltimore Orioles. He was the winning pitcher in Game 2 of the 2008 ALCS against the Boston Red Sox, earning a post season victory before winning a regular season game. He recorded the final four outs in Game 7 of the 2008 ALCS, earning his first career save and eliminating the defending champion Boston Red Sox.
