Big Surprise, Price Opening Day Starter

While most considered it a foregone conclusion, Rays manager Joe Maddon announced Tuesday that David Price would be this year’s Opening Day starter.

This will be just the second Opening Day assignment for the reigning Cy Young Award winner.

Price was the Rays’ 2011 Opening Day starter, but James Shields got the nod last season.

The Rays open the season on April 2 in a 3:10 afternoon tilt against the Orioles at Tropicana Field.
