Rays’ David Price Avoids Arbitration With 1-Year Deal, ESPN Says

January 02, 2013

Cy Young Award-winning pitcher David Price of the Tampa Bay Rays avoided arbitration by agreeing to a one-year contract with the team, ESPN reported.

Price, who made $4.35 million last season, will make about $10 million in 2013, ESPN said, citing a person within Major League Baseball it didn’t identify.

Price, 27, will be eligible for free agency after the 2015 season. He went 20-5 last year with a 2.56 earned run average to win the Cy Young Award as the American League’s best pitcher. In five seasons in the major leagues he’s 61-31 with a 3.16 ERA.
