David Price’s Future: Playoffs, Then Trade?

David priceNEW YORK — David Price admits the thought has crossed his mind.

These are likely his final days with the Rays. Wednesday night’s start against the Yankees was likely his last regular-season start for the only team he has ever known.

When this season ends, whenever that is, the Rays are expected to explore trading their Cy Young left-hander. By the time spring training begins, Price will likely be wearing a new uniform.

The reason is simple. The Rays can’t afford to sign Price to a long-term contract. By the end of this season, he’ll be two years from free agency.
