The Rays announced this afternoon that David Price has been placed on the 15-day DL with a “left triceps strain.” It is the first trip to the DL in his career.
Price’s spot on the roster will be taken by Alex Torres who’s stint with the team will like be short. Torres will likely serve as the long-reliever until Monday when the Rays will need a starting pitcher in Toronto. The Rays will likely promote somebody else at that point to make the start. The obvious choice would be Jake Odorizzi who would be on normal rest.
