Price youngest wins leader in Majors

ARLINGTON -- At 24, David Price is the youngest pitcher to be leading the American League or the National League in wins and ERA on June 4, since 23-year-old Wilson Alvarez led the AL with the White Sox in 1993 (his eight wins were tied for first and his 2.55 ERA was first).

Price is the youngest to be leading the AL or NL outright in both categories since 23-year-old Bret Saberhagen led the AL with the Royals in 1987 (10 wins and a 2.22 ERA). The only other Rays pitcher to be leading the AL in wins on June 24 was Rolando Arrojo, whose eight wins in 1998 were tied for the AL lead.
