The Tampa Bay Rays are 0-3 in ace pitcher David Price's starts this season.
Price is 0-1 with a 5.82 ERA in three appearances. The lefty will take the bump versus the Baltimore Orioles Thursday, hoping to improve on the -4.6 units he's cost Rays backers this month. That's the worst in the majors, by the way.
The defending American League Cy Young winner is off to a slow start in 2013, but is coming off his best performance of the season. Price went six innings in a no-decision in his last start Saturday. He surrendered one earned run as the Rays lost 2-1 to the Boston Red Sox.
Oddsmakers have sent out a suggested moneyline of Tampa Bay -125 at Baltimore Thursday. The total was sent out at 7.5 runs.
