AL CY YOUNG
DAVID PRICE, LHP, BOSTON Boston landed one of the big free agent prizes of the winter in signing the lefty to a $217-million contract. The 2012 Cy Young Award winner has a career mark of 104–56 and a 3.09 ERA, plus he’s exactly the type of guy you want in a clubhouse. The 30-year-old’s strikeouts per nine innings dipped to 9.2 from 9.8 and his walks per nine rose from 1.4 to 1.9. On the other hand, he allowed just 17 homers after giving up 25 the year before.
