The American League Cy Young winner is going on the disabled list for the first time in his career.
The Tampa Bay Rays' pitcher David Price strained his left tricep and today the team put him on the 15-day DL. The left-hander exited Wednesday night's loss to Boston after allowing four runs in 2 1-3 innings.
A 20-game winner last year, Price has struggled this season. Tampa Bay has lost seven of his nine starts, and he has given up eight leads over his past seven outings. He is 1-4 with a 5.29 ERA in nine starts.
"It's new territory for me, I've never really had any arm troubles," he said. "I missed a start last year with my shoulder, but that was all done in the weight room and that went away. It's frustrating. I think even more so frustrating because I'm throwing the ball as bad as I am. It's rough."
