David Price Named To His Fourth All-Star Team
David Price will take the mound against the Detroit Tigers on Sunday night baseball with the knowledge that he has been selected as a member of the 2014 American League All-Star squad.
He was also named to the All-Star team in 2010, 2011, and 2012. Thus far in 2014 he has posted a record of 7-7 and an ERA of 3.50 but has struck out an American League leading 153 batters while only issuing 17 walks in his 131 innings of work.
He will be looking to be part of a winning All-Star squad for the first time in his career. In 2010 he started the game and threw a pair of scoreless innings striking out one in a 3-1 loss to the National League. In 2011 he was named to the squad but did not appear due to a turf-toe issues as the National League won the game 5-1. In 2012 the National League again bested the American League this time 8-0 but Price was able to work a scoreless third inning.
