Update On Rays David Price Trade Talks

Posted By Sports Talk Florida On December 22, 2013 @ 12:23 PM In Florida News,main feature,MLB | No Comments

In an article with the latest on the David Price [1] situation, the Tampa Bay Times’ Marc Topkin [2] dismisses reports that the Rays are motivated to move the Cy Young winner by Dec. 31 to avoid having to pay $4MM in deferred money.

“The payment isn’t due until Oct. 1, and it is the Rays’ obligation, so really a nonfactor, as including it would be the same as asking for cash in a deal and subject to MLB approval,” Topkin writes.

While the Mariners are often named as a likely suitor for Price, they “seem to talk more about what prospects they don’t want to trade.”
