April 8 News and Notes

This offense is going to make lots of pitchers watch as they circle the bases. - USA TODAY Sports

David Price had a rough go of it on Sunday.

  • David Price gave up a season high of 7 runs last year and the 8 he gave up to the Indians Sunday equals his totals for the entire months of July 2012 and August 2012.

    Price has not given up 8 runs since the 7th start of his career, July 2009, a span of 114 starts.

    PB: H Blanco.

    That is an improvement.
  • Carlos Santana had his first career 5-hit game (and his first career 4-hit game). He hit a late home run off of Fernando Rodney, who had a 0.60 ERA last season.

    Roberto Hernandez, the pitcher once known as Fausto Carmona, started for the Tampa Bay Rays on Thursday. According to the Rays, Hernandez was the first pitcher signed as a free agent to start for them since July 15, 2005 — a streak of 1,207 games. Before Hernandez, who makes $3.25 million this season, the last pitcher signed as a free agent to start for the Rays was Hideo Nomo, who gave up seven runs to Toronto and never started in the majors again.
    There's also the fact that he was the first pitcher over 30 years old to start for the Rays in 1,060 games.
