LAKE BUENA VISTA, Fla. (AP) - David Price has two more years before he can test free agency, and Tampa Bay manager Joe Maddon knows that means he can't count on his lefty ace being in the Rays' rotation next year.
The low-budget Rays are rumored to be entertaining trade offers for the 28-year-old 2012 Cy Young Award winner who could be in for a huge payday after the 2015 season.
Maddon says that's how the Rays have to operate in their organization. Maddon was at the baseball winter meetings near Orlando on Monday.
Last winter, Tampa Bay traded pitchers James Shields and Wade Davis to Kansas City for a package of prospects. Among the players the Rays got in return was this year's AL Rookie of the Year, Wil Myers.
