While Price is way from the one participant at fault in among the defeats, supervisor Alex Cora shared his ideas on the left-hander’s struggles after surrendering 9 hits and 4 runs over simply 4.1 innings on Tuesday.
“I just feel like location-wise, he’s been off,” mentioned Cora. “He’s a guy that’s very precise. When he’s on, the fastball in to righties, and then dominating the outside part of the plate against them, it’s always there. Cutter, sinker, changeup, fastball up, and he’s been off.”
“The start in Detroit,” Cora continued. “It was a good one, but a lot of foul balls, grinding at-bats, and then obviously the one in Baltimore, so we’ll take a look at it, but I think location is everything with him.”
