David Taylor Price (born August 26, 1985) is an American professional baseball pitcher for the Los Angeles Dodgers of Major League Baseball (MLB).
Price was selected first overall in the 2007 Major League Baseball Draft by the Tampa Bay Rays and made his MLB debut in September 2008. He has also played for the Detroit Tigers and Toronto Blue Jays.
Price pitched out of the bullpen during the Rays' run through the 2008 playoffs. Just weeks after his first appearance in the big leagues, he earned a memorable save in Game 7 of the ALCS, helping his club reach their first World Series. Price became a full-time starting pitcher in 2009. In his second full season, he was named the American League starter for the 2010 All-Star Game and finished second in the voting for the 2010 Cy Young Award. He won his first Cy Young Award in 2012 after a tight race. The Rays traded Price to the Tigers during the 2014 season. When the Tigers fell out of the postseason race in 2015, they traded him to the Blue Jays, who won their division and advanced to the ALCS. That following off-season, the Boston Red Sox signed Price to a franchise record seven-year, $217 million contract. In 2018 he won the series-clinching Game 5 as the Red Sox won the World Series over the Los Angeles Dodgers.
