ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. (AP) — The Tampa Bay Rays have put AL Cy Young Award winner David Price on the 15-day disabled list because of a strained left triceps.
This is the first time in Price's career that he has been on the DL. The left-hander departed his start Wednesday night against Boston in the third inning with the injury.
Price has struggled this season, going 1-4 with a 5.24 ERA in nine starts.
Tampa Bay also recalled left-hander Alex Torres from Triple-A Durham.
