Player Notes
According to USA Today's Bob Nightengale, MLB executives are "absolutely convinced" that Tigers lefty David Price is going to wind up with the Dodgers.

Advice: Nightengale suspects that Los Angeles will fork over top pitching prospect Julio Urias to get it done. Price is also drawing heavy interest from the Yankees, Giants, and Blue Jays, but the Dodgers have the young talent to beat all the other suitors. And they'll be a good bet to lock Price up long term once they have him in their grasp.

According to Jon Heyman of CBS Sports, the Dodgers, Yankees, Giants and Blue Jays are the four main teams vying to acquire David Price from the Tigers.

Advice: All four teams have been in contact with the Tigers. In a move that came as a surprise to virtually no one, Dave Dombrowski announced Wednesday that the Tigers would listen to offers on their impending free agents, which immediately added another elite hurler to the trade market. With four big market clubs in the bidding, expect the Tigers to net a decent haul for the All-Star left-hander.

ESPN's Jayson Stark reports that the Tigers called teams Wednesday to tell them they were "rebooting" and will listen to trade offers for David Price, Yoenis Cespedes and others.

Advice: One of the big questions this week has been whether the Tigers will be buyers or sellers at the deadline, and now we have our answer. Price instantly becomes one of the most attractive trade chips and will surely bring a boatload even though he's slated for free agency after the season. Cespedes should also bring back quite a bit and the Tigers figure to shop Joakim Soria and others, as well.

USA Today's Bob Nightengale reports that the Dodgers, Yankees and Blue Jays are "poised to have an all-out bidding war" for David Price "once they get the go-ahead."

Advice: To this point, the Tigers have remained steadfast in their desire to compete for a playoff spot this season rather than be sellers. But, it's getting harder by the day for them to view themselves as real contenders, so they could reverse course soon. Price would be one of a few assets they could barter off, with Yoenis Cespedes and Joakim Soria being a couple others.

David Price lost to the Rays on Tuesday, surrendering five runs in six innings of work.

Advice: The Rays jumped on him for three runs in the fourth inning, two of which came on the first of Curt Casali's two home runs. Casali victimized Price again for a solo shot in the sixth. The lefty, overall, allowed seven hits and a pair of walks while striking out four. He stands with a terrific 2.53 ERA, 1.11 WHIP, and a 138/29 K/BB ratio in 146 innings. If Price remains with the Tigers through the trade deadline, he's on tap to finish out a road trip in Baltimore against the Orioles.

FOX Sports' Jon Morosi reports that the Tigers remain in "buy" mode.

Advice: However, he also notes that a poor performance in their early-week series in Tampa could lead to them putting David Price on the trade market. They could also shop Yoenis Cespedes if they wind up altering their course. The Tigers are four games out of a Wild Card spot at the moment and are expected to get Miguel Cabrera (calf) back in about three weeks.

Bo McKinnis, the agent for David Price, believes that the Tigers will wait until the trade deadline before making a decision on whether or not to trade the left-hander.

Advice: With the Tigers slumping of late, it's getting harder and harder to justify keeping Price and other impending free agents. Still, general manager Dave Dombrowski is likely to wait until the last minute, even if deciding to deal Price, to let the market for other starting pitchers to play out first.

According to Jon Morosi of FOX Sports, the Giants have expressed interest in Tigers ace David Price.

Advice: Morosi notes, however, that there have been "no substantive talks yet" because the Tigers haven't decided whether they're going to be buyers or sellers ahead of the July 31 trade deadline. Price, who's due to become a free agent in the winter, owns a sparkling 2.31 ERA, 1.09 WHIP, and 134/27 K/BB ratio in 140 innings this season. He's also thought to have potential suitors in the Dodgers, Cubs, and Blue Jays.

Jon Morosi of FOX Sports reports that the Blue Jays, Cubs and Dodgers have all expressed interest in David Price, should he become available via trade.

Advice: While the Tigers should probably sell at the trade deadline, they haven't committed to doing so just yet. Set to hit free agency at the end of the season, dealing Price now and getting the best possible return seems the best path for the Tigers to take.

David Price was sharp in a Thursday afternoon no-decision against the Mariners, allowing just two runs on five hits over his eight innings of work before his team fell 3-2 in 12 innings.

Advice: Price struck out seven and walked one in the contest. Kyle Seager burned him for a solo home run in the first inning, but he wouldn't allow another runner to cross the plate until Mark Trumbo hit an RBI single in the seventh. Unfortunately for Price, this single knotted the score at 2-2 and snatched a no-decision from the jaws of victory, as the game would not be resolved until the 12th inning. The southpaw ace will take a stellar 2.31 ERA, 1.09 WHIP and 134/27 K/BB ratio in 140 innings into his next start, a road outing against the Rays. Depending on what happens at the trade deadline, that could be the last start that Price makes for the team. It's difficult to see him being traded, but stranger things have happened.
