If Cy Young is in Price's future, he'll be thrilled
CHICAGO -- David Price is a strong contender to win the American League Cy Young Award this season. Recently, the Rays left-hander talked about the award and its significance.

"I remember growing up, I didn't know that that was an award," Price said. "I just thought that he was a really good pitcher. Getting older, you realize what that award is and what that award means. To be named the best pitcher in your league for that year is pretty special."

Price conceded that he would like to win the award.

"But it's not up to me, I can only go out there and pitch as good as I can tomorrow and leave the rest up to whatever else," Price said.

While Sunday could be Price's final start of the 2012 season, the lefty would like to have another start this week.

"Absolutely, it's either a Wild Card play-in game or a tiebreaker game," Price said. "Hopefully, I can at least have two more starts and go from there."
