David Price: Taking 2023 off
Price's agent Bo McKinnis announced Tuesday the left-hander doesn't plan to pitch in 2023, Jon Heyman of the New York Post reports.
Price spent the past two seasons with the Dodgers and primarily worked out of the bullpen, and he had a 2.45 ERA, 1.17 WHIP and 37:9 K:BB across 40.1 innings during 2022. This doesn't appear to be a formal retirement, but a year off at 37 years could very well be the end of his 14-year MLB career.... See More ... See Less
Dodgers' David Price: Earns second save
Price walked one in a scoreless inning to earn the save in Thursday's 5-2 win over the Padres.
Price didn't face much of a challenge to earn his third career save and his second of the season. This was his first appearance in a month after he missed time with wrist inflammation. The southpaw should continue to see high-leverage work as part of the late-inning mix in the Dodgers' bullpen. He has a 2.52 ERA, 1.17 WHIP and 37:9 K:BB while adding four holds and two wins through 39.1 innings this year.... See More ... See Less

Dodgers' David Price: Planning to retire after season
Price (wrist) said Saturday in an interview with Bob Nightengale of USA Today that he plans to retire following the 2022 season. "Everything on my body hurts," said Price, who is currently on the injured list with left wrist inflammation. "It's just time [to retire]."
Price is in the final season of the seven-year, $217 million deal he inked with the Red Sox back in December 2015, and because he's transitioned into a relief role during his two years with the Dodgers since opting out of the 2020 season, he likely wouldn't be in store for a lucrative deal on the open market this winter heading into what would be his age-37 campaign. Moreover, the left-hander has dealt with an assortment of injuries throughout his career, though he's been reasonably effective out of the Los Angeles bullpen when healthy this season with a 2.58 ERA, 1.17 WHIP and 37:8 K:BB across 38.1 innings. The five-time All-Star remains hopeful to return from the IL during the upcoming week and should re-emerge as a key middle-to-late-inning arm for the Dodgers in the postseason as he looks to conclude his career by claiming his second World Series ring this fall....

Dodgers' David Price: Goes on IL
The Dodgers placed Price (wrist) on the 15-day injured list Sunday.
Just as manager Dave Roberts hinted would be the case following Saturday's 12-1 win over the Padres, Price was deactivated ahead of Sunday's series finale while he recovers from left wrist inflammation. The issue has reportedly been bothering Price all season, so he could be shelved beyond the minimum 15 days while the Dodgers aim to get him back to optimal health in advance of the playoffs. Price had been pitching effectively of late in spite of the injury, logging a 1.13 ERA, 0.75 WHIP and 11:3 K:BB across 16 innings over his 16 relief appearances since the All-Star break....

Dodgers' David Price: Blows save but earns win
Price (2-0) blew a save opportunity but picked up the win Friday against Miami. He allowed a solo home run in one inning of work.
Closer Craig Kimbrel was deployed in the eighth inning, and Price was chosen to handle the bottom of the ninth after the Dodgers took a one-run lead in the top of the frame. The left-hander immediately served up a game-tying homer to Peyton Burdick to blow the opportunity, though he partly redeemed himself by getting out of the inning with the score still tied despite two Dodgers errors. Price then earned the win when Los Angeles surged for five runs in the extra frame. The veteran has been effective since the All-Star break, posting a 1.15 ERA and 0.64 WHIP over 15.2 innings while picking up two wins, a save and a hold.... See More ... See Less

Price allowed two inherited runners to score on back-to-back RBI singles, but he was able to strike out Austin Slater to end the contest. This was the veteran southpaw's second career save and his first of the season. He's given up two runs on eight hits and a walk with four strikeouts in four innings in July. For the season, Price owns a 3.42 ERA, 1.48 WHIP and 28:5 K:BB across 23.2 innings, adding three holds and a blown save in 24 appearances as a mainly low-leverage reliever.... See More ... See Less
