David Price tabbed as Tigers Opening Day starter

Fans of the Detroit Tigers will notice something different this Opening Day. Left handed David Price will be on the mound for the Tigers snapping a seven year run that saw Justin Verlander start on Opening Day.

Price is coming ff a fine season in which he split time between the Tampa Bay Rays and Tigers finishing with 3.26 ERA and a 1.08 WHIP across 248 1/3 innings of work. Set to hit free agency at the end of the season, Price will be looking to snag another a big payday after earning $19.75 million this season.

Verlander is coming off a down season in which he was 15-12 with a 4.54 ERA and 1.40 WHIP across 206 innings.
