David Price ended up on the wrong side of the decision column for the first time of his professional career on Wednesday night. Price, making his Triple-A debut for the Durham Bulls, allowed three earned runs on seven hits in four innings in a 7-6 loss to the Norfolk Tides. The 22-year-old left-hander, expected to make an impact for the Tampa Bay Rays down the stretch, struck out six without walking a hitter.

Price is now 11-1 with a 98-to-23 K/W ratio in 16 starts combined between three levels. Even with the mediocre International League debut, look for him to get called up soon enough. He has the command, pitching smarts and stuff to make an impact for the Rays. Most likely coming out of the bullpen, which will limit his innings, the former number one overall pick may play a major factor in the American League East race.
