David Price already has a long list of accomplishments through the early portion of his major league career.
Price has only been in the big leagues for four full seasons, compiling a 61-31 record, a 3.16 ERA in 786.1 innings of work and 725 strike outs over that span. He was named the 2012 American League Cy Young after winning 20 games and posting a 2.56 ERA. The left-hander finished in second place back in 2010.
But Price now has a unique achievement that he can boast about.
Price was selected to be featured on the cover of MLB 2K13, the popular baseball video game that was released on March 5. Those at 2K Sports have reworked many aspects of the game and I had the opportunity to speak with Price about being the cover athlete, the changes to the game and a variety of baseball-related topics last Tuesday.
Let’s take a look at what the Tampa Bay Rays' ace had to say.
