Player Notes
David Price is expected to make his Blue Jays debut on Monday versus the Twins.

Advice: The Jays were considering having him start Sunday, but they've decided to keep R.A. Dickey on turn. Price was acquired from the Tigers on Thursday in exchange for Daniel Norris, Jairo Labourt and Matt Boyd.

Blue Jays acquired LHP David Price from the Tigers for LHPs Daniel Norris, Jairo Labourt, and Matt Boyd.

Advice: Price had been drawing heavy interest from the Dodgers, Yankees, Cubs, and Giants, but the Blue Jays beat all the other offers. It's a risky play to give up so much young, cost-controlled talent for what could be a 2-3 month rental -- Price is eligible for free agency after the World Series -- but the Jays feel they can make a postseason push and they've now combined two of the top trade targets on this year's market. Troy Tulowitzki was acquired from the Rockies earlier this week.

Jon Heyman of CBS Sports confirms that the Blue Jays have acquired David Price from the Tigers.

Advice: Daniel Norris, Jairo Labourt, and Matt Boyd are the three pitching prospects headed to Detroit in return, per USA Today's Bob Nightengale. There was talk Thursday morning that the Dodgers were the heavy favorite to land Price, but Toronto simply stepped up with a better package. Price, 29, has a 2.53 ERA, 1.11 WHIP, and a 138/29 K/BB ratio in 146 innings this season. He'll likely be no more than a rental for the Jays, but it's a huge boost to that previously-underwhelming pitching staff.

According to CBS Sports' Jon Heyman, the Blue Jays are "closing in" on a David Price trade.

Advice: Jeff Passan of Yahoo Sports is hearing the same, and says a deal could be consummated soon. Toronto already grabbed Troy Tulowitzki from the Rockies, and the club now appears to be on the verge of making a major splash in the starting pitching department. Price, 29, owns a 2.53 ERA, 1.11 WHIP, and a 138/29 K/BB ratio in 146 innings this season for the Tigers. He has also been drawing interest from the Dodgers, Yankees, and Giants.

CBS Sports' Jon Heyman reports that the Blue Jays are "making a major push" for David Price.

Advice: USA Today's Bob Nightengale wrote earlier that some MLB executives are "absolutely convinced" Price is going to wind up with the Dodgers, but the Jays appear prepared to make Los Angeles work for it. Price, 29, is the biggest fish on the starting pitching market now that Cole Hamels has been dealt to the Rangers.

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.
