Price names Martinez, not Cabrera, as the most difficult batter he has had to face.
Tiger pitcher David Price is doing just fine…
Price would consider a contract extension with Detroit, but free agency does hold a strong appeal – and not just because of the money.
With the completion of the deals, right-handed relief pitcher Al Alburquerque remains the only arbitration-eligible player the Tigers have yet to settle with.
Dombrowski said the Tigers are not actively pursuing Max Scherzer, but they may be going after the second-best starter on the market.
Price won the Cy Young in 2012, has a career ERA of 3.21 and becomes a free agent following the 2015 season.
Price, who won the Cy Young in 2012, came to the Tigers in a deadline deal last season and recorded a 3.59 ERA in 11 starts for Detroit.
According to a report by Ken Rosenthal and Jon Paul Morosi of Foxsports.com, they believe the St. Louis Cardinals are setting their sights on Max Scherzer and David Price.
“I’m kind of surprised being here at the Winter Meetings that you really haven’t heard about Scherzer.”
It appears the Tigers are fielding a lot of phone calls from teams inquiring about starting pitchers David Price and Rick Porcello.
