Price expected to miss one start, face Yankees
ST. PETERSBURG -- David Price did not make his scheduled start Saturday after experiencing general soreness in his left shoulder, which allowed Chris Archer to make his third start of the season.

For the second day in a row Price played catch and afterward said: "Felt good. Felt pretty close to normal."

Price had more than normal soreness following his start in Toronto on Sunday. When asked in hindsight if he knew how the problem originated, Price smiled: "I have no idea. Just get ready for my next start."

To that end, Price said he will probably throw his bullpen on Tuesday. The Rays have said he'll miss one start then make a start in next weekend's series against the Yankees in New York.

Price leads the American League in wins with 17 and he leads the Major Leagues with a 2.54 ERA.

Since the Cy Young Award was awarded to both leagues in 1967, 18 of the 19 pitchers to lead either league in both wins and ERA have won the award. Baltimore's Mike Boddicker was the lone exception in 1984 when he lost to Detroit's Willie Hernandez.
