Prospect Q&A: David Price

Grant Paulsen -

This installment features lefthander David Price, the top prospect in the Rays organization and the best pitching prospect in the game. Price was the No. 1 overall pick in the 2007 draft, then made his professional debut last year and jetted all the way from high Class A to the World Series by season's end. He was a key pitcher in the Rays bullpen in the postseason, and he reflects on those experiences as he looks ahead to this year.
