Still no timetable for David Price’s return to the Rays rotation

The placed reigning AL Cy Young award winner on the 15-day DL with a  10 days ago, and there is still no timetable for his return, according to .

“I honestly have no idea,” said Price when asked for a possible return date. “You have to give it a chance to heal, a chance to get better, and that’s what we’re doing right now. … It all depends on how I feel when I play catch. Not trial and error, but we’re going have to base it on day-to-day.”

Price, 27, made sure to mention he has been doing strengthening exercises and the triceps is pain-free. “I feel great. And that’s probably the toughest thing for me right now is my arm feels the way it does, and my body feels the way it does, and I’m not able to do anything yet because we just have to give it time, and I understand that,” he added.

In nine starts before the injury, Price comments.Agnelli has questioned La Dea’s entry into the Champions League due to their modest history.“I find it absurd enough, at this moment, to return to the subject,” Cairo responded in the Gazzetta dello Sport. “There are no differences comp pitched to a 5.24 ERA and 1.44 WHIP in 55 innings.

It’s a real blow because we put in will leave the King Power Stadium this summer.He posted to Instagram: “I don’t even know where to start. I never ever thought that on the day I signed for Leicester I’d play for you as long ined him in the minor leagues in 2008.

Right-hander Jake Odorizzi allowed three runs in five innings against the Blue Jays last week as the rotation fill-in. He’ll start again on Monday. If he pitches well enough during Price’s absence, he could stick with the team and replace the ineffective Roberto Hernandez (5.73 ERA and 1.44 WHIP).

Rays’ pitching staff isn’t pitching like a typical Rays pitching staff

content_img

| | | |

On Monday night, the had a 7-0 lead after three innings. On Tuesday night, they had a 4-1 lead after six innings. They lost both games thanks to spectacular pitching collapses.

Entering Wednesday, the Rays had the fifth-worst ERA (4.44) and seventh-worst WHIP (1.33) in baseball this season. Last year they had the best ERA (3.19) and WHIP (1.17) in the game, both by a decent margin. The year before they had the eighth-best ERA (3.58) and second-best WHIP (1.22). Usually we talk about the Rays having one of the best pitching staffs in the game, not one the worst.

Perhaps the most amazing thing about the team’s pitching trouble is how nearly every single member of the staff is performing worse than they did a year ago. Here are the holdovers, the guys who pitched for the Rays in both 2012 and 2013:

2012-13 Rays Pitching StaffPitcher2012 ERA2012 WHIP2013 ERA2013 WHIPDavid Price2.561.106.251.48Alex Cobb4.031.252.791.19Jeremy Hellickson3.101.254.791.31Matt Moore3.811.351.951.05Fernando Rodney0.600.785.061.78Joel Peralta3.631.192.511.19Jake McGee1.950.8011.252.25Cesar Ramos2.100.975.631.63Kyle Farnsworth4.001.337.36United have made an opening offer of £35million to sign Dembele, according to reports in France.The former Celtic and Fulham striker has netted 23 times in Ligue 1 this season and has attracted attention from a number of top European teams.Ole Gunna2.32

Half the rotation and all but one reliever has pitched worse in 2013 than he did in 2012. In some cases — Rodney and McGee, specifically — a decline in performance was to be expected. Those two were outstanding last year and it would have been tough to repeat that success. Still, the decline has been drastic.

Cobb and Moore are pitching like aces so far, and I suspect Price will join them at some point. He’s simply way too good to pitch like he has over a full season. Unless he’s hurt, of courseire is optimistic about his relationship with Vimpard defended Mount at today’s Super Cup pre-match presser.He said, “I pick the best team to win the game, regardless of age. Mount deserves his chance on merit, I won’t fear to play young players. In terms of how we set up, I really liked some ofctor Lindelof.The centre-half duo successfully subdued Jamie Vardy in Saturday’s 1-0 win over Leicester City.”You have to realise partnerships are built on playing games and we have only had five games,. The entire staff has taken a step back, it seems. This looks more like a Devil Rays staff than a typical Rays staff.

Tampa entered Wednesday with a 14-18 record, good for fourth place in the AL East and 6 1/2 games back of the first place Red Sox. Their offense has been just fine so far (averaging 4.5 runs per game), but their pitching staff has been a huge disappointment. Strong pitching is the team’s trademark, and right now they are getting very little of that.
