#2 David Price (OF) Toronto Blue Jays

The tall left-handed pitcher out of Vanderbilt University has had quite the career already in his brief time in the Major Leagues. Price brings dominance to the mound every time he is toeing the rubber and will be a huge addition for a team this winter. He will command and get top dollar on the open market. That is a given.

Leading the Toronto Blue Jays all the way to the ALCS, Price failed to get a win, but still showed the makeup you want from your ace pitcher. Price was 18-5 on the season with a 2.45 ERA and a 1.026 WHIP. He was dealt to the Blue Jays from the Detroit Tigers prior to the July trade deadline. The Blue Jays went for it all and just fell short of their goal.

In his eight Major League seasons, Price has gone 104-56 with a 3.09 ERA and a 1.132 WHIP. His entire career has been in the American League, and you would have to wonder how much better his numbers would be if he threw for a National League team. Price could change the face of a rotation but it will cost you financially.

His salary demands are likely to be anywhere from $28-35 million per season with a minimum of five years on the contract. Worth noting that Price has had a relationship with Joe Maddon, the Cubs manager and the team could easily give Price what he wants financially. At 30 years of age, Price still has some left in the tank and he will be a huge addition for some large market team.
