Allergies To Blame For David Price’s Struggles?

ST. PETERSBURG — David Price underwent an allergy test Tuesday morning and received nasal spray and eye drops, which he hopes will clear up his blurry vision and help the rashes he’s been dealing with since early January.

“It was terrible. It [stinks],” Price said. “It still does. It’s getting better.”

Could that also have had something to do with Price’s sluggish start to the season, including his 1-3 record and 4.78 ERA? The southpaw admitted there have been times this year where he’s had to step off the mound because he couldn’t see which signs the catcher was putting down, but he wouldn’t use his vision as an excuse.

“I would never say yes,” Price said.


Earlier today on The Whitney Johnson Experience Rays Beat Writer Roger Mooney of The Tampa Tribune talked to Whitney about David Price’s allergies and how it could be affecting Price.
