The Giants are doing background work on David Price

8 Comments

ESPN’s Buster Olney reports that the Giants are among the clubs “going through background preparation” on David Price.

Which makes a lot of sense given that they’re saying goodbye to Tim Hudson this year and that, beyond Madison Bumgarner, the rotation was no great shakes in 2015. The Giants, flush with a sellout streak and an election victory which is going to allow them to rake in a lot more money in the next few years, are suspected to be in search of top-flight pitching this winter and David Price is as top-flight as it gets.

 

Doubleheader between Cardinals and Tigers postponed

A doubleheader between the St. Louis Cardinals and Detroit Tigers this week is being postponed to allow more time for additional COVID-19 testing.

MLB opted to postpone Thursday’s doubleheader to continue additional testing while players and staff are quarantined before the team returns to play. More details about the Cardinals’ resumption of play will be announced later this week.

The Cardinals had a series against Pittsburgh set to start on Monday postponed after a weekend series against the Cubs was scrapped due to three positive coronavirus tests.

St. Louis had two more players and a staff member test positive for the virus on Friday and have had eight positive players overall, including star catcher Yadier Molina.

There have now been 29 games postponed by Major League Baseball because of coronavirus concerns. The Cardinals have not played since July 30 and have had 15 games scrapped.

Miami and Philadelphia each had seven games postponed earlier and have returned to the field since the disruptions.
