Default David Price Promoted to AA!

Sweet. Now we'll get to see how he handles a hitter's league. This will be his first real challenge.


Rays' Top 2007 pick, Price promoted to Biscuits
By A. Stacy Long June 22, 2008

David Price, the No. 1 pick in last year's draft and a former All-American at Vanderbilt, has been promoted to the Biscuits.


Price and outfielder J.T. Hall were promoted from high-Class A Vero Beach after Vero's 5-3 win over St. Lucie on Saturday night.

The two will drive to Montgomery today but aren't expected to arrive in time for the Biscuits' game this afternoon with the Mississippi Braves.

"He's going to be a good teammate and he's a nice guy," Biscuits pitcher Wade Davis said after Montgomery's 9-8, 11-inning loss to the Braves on Saturday.

"I think he'll be able to help us out," Davis said. "He's a nice guy, down to earth and really smart. He's a good guy."

Price was 4-0 with a 1.82 ERA in six starts with Vero Beach. The left-hander allowed three runs on five hits in 6 1/3 innings to win Saturday.

He's scheduled to make his debut for the Biscuits on Thursday in Mobile.

Cool, I had just been checking his stats yesterday. He's doing great even considering he had been injured.

Interestingly enough, he spent exactly one month in High-A. His first start was on May 22nd.

More news - Jeremy Hellickson has just been promoted with him to Montgomery!

Unfortunately, the downside is that Jake McGee is now on the shelf with a sore forearm. Still, when he recovers, imagine a rotation consisting of Price/McGee/Davis/Hellickson.

Assuming Price is still there by then, of course.
