The Toronto Blue Jays have done it again.
After landing shortstop Troy Tulowitzki from the Colorado Rockies a couple of days ago, the Jays have now added 2012 AL Cy Young Award winner David Price, giving the team a bona fide ace. In exchange for Price, the Jays sent the Detroit Tigers three left-handed pitching prospects — Daniel Norris, Matt Boyd and Jairo Labourt.
In 2015, Price is 9-2 with a 2.53 ERA having fanned 138 batters in 146 innings pitched. Price, of course, began his career with the Tampa Bay Devil Rays as the number one pick in the 2007 MLB Draft. He came to the majors the following year when the Rays shocked the world and won the AL pennant. Price finished runner up in the AL Cy Young balloting in 2010 to Felix Hernandez of the Seattle Mariners before winning the Cy Young in 2012.
