 ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. (AP) -Tampa Bay Devil Rays principal owner Stuart Sternberg came away impressed after watching his newest big investment take the mound.
David Price, taken first overall in this year's amateur draft, threw 44 pitches during a 10-minute bullpen session before Tampa Bay played Cleveland on Friday night. It was his first workout before team officials since signing a six-year, $11.25 million contract on Wednesday.
``He's a young man that carries himself really well,'' Sternberg said. ``He's really got it together. He is special.''
Price's deal included $8.5 million guaranteed, with a $5.6 million signing bonus.
Price admitted he felt a ``little nervous'' during his throwing session.
``I don't know why,'' Price said. ``I calmed down a little bit.''
The Devil Rays plan to have Price join one of their minor league teams for the next couple weeks, but the left-hander is not expected to see any game action. He will also spend about 10 days later this year with Tampa Bay's fall instructional league team.
``I got to watch the routine, how he warms up,'' Devil Rays manager Joe Maddon said. ``I like the whole structure of how he does things. And the actual bullpen, he's got an exceptional delivery and of course a good arm. I see him fitting in very well here.''
