If Price wins today…

If David Price wins for the Rays today he will move to 10-7 on the season to give the Rays two rookies with 10 plus wins and winning records.

Since 1980, just three sets of American League rookie teammates have finished above .500 with 10-plus wins. That group includes Freddy Garcia (17-9) and John Halama (11-10) for Seattle in 1999; Mike Timlin (11-6) and Juan Guzman (10-3) for Toronto in 1991; and Britt Burns (15-13) and Rich Dotson (12-10) for Chicago in 1980.
