David Price, Boston Red Sox

9-7, 4.36 ERA, 1.23 WHIP

This may require a small miracle, but if anyone would be able to pull it off, it’s David Price.

Red Sox fans expected so much more than what they’ve seen so far from the former Cy Young Award winner when he signed a 7 year, $217 million dollar deal over the offseason.

The lefty’s 4.36 ERA is unusually high for his standards, and that is in large part to due his extremely slow start. His 5.76 ERA in April was one of the worst months of his career.

Reasons for hope?

He does have 141 strikeouts however (best in baseball) and has logged over 125 innings thus far this year. The work horse has been much better in July, sporting a 2.49 ERA in three starts.

Additionally, Price has a 49-24 record with an ERA just over 3.00 after the All-Star Break in his career. The 30-year-old’s track record is simply too good for him not to have an exceptional second half.

Will David Price’s second half be good enough for Cy Young Consideration? Probably not, but knowing how good Price is, it’d be unwise to rule it out.
