MLB execs “absolutely convinced” that David Price is going to the Dodgers

Take it for what it’s worth — everyone was convinced Cole Hamels was going to Houston this time yesterday — but Bob Nightengale has some informed speculation:

Seems like a distinct possibility. The Dodgers just picked up a couple of nice pieces from the Braves in Alex Wood and Jose Peraza who could be packaged and sent to Detroit. And, of course, already had a decent set of prospects of their own, as well as random, rumored-to-be-on-the-block pieces such as Alex Guerrero and even Yasiel Puig.

Of course the Tigers and their fans should temper expectations on the return — Price is a two-month rental at the moment — and the last ace who went out on a rental, Johnny Cueto, brought back three pitching prospects. Still, these teams seem to match up nicely for a trade.
