The Tampa Bay Rays can ill-afford an injury to their ace David Price.  He has already struggled enough this season after winning the American League Cy Young last year, a serious injury could really derail his season.  So when he was pulled from his start yesterday, fingers were hovering over the panic button.  Fortunately, Rays' manager Joe Maddon doesn't think Price's injury is serious. According to Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times, Price was lifted with what was an unknown injury at the time.  Word quickly trickled out that it was a triceps injury, but reporters were not given a detailed update until after the game.  Fortunately, it seems Price will be alright. Maddon says #rays price has "triceps strain", already had MRI. "Nothing seems to be serious" — Marc Topkin (@TBTimes_Rays) May 16, 2013 Topkin went on to say Price will likely miss his next start, but the team does not intend to place him on the disabled list.  The skipped start will simply be precautionary.  Hopefully the rest is enough to allow Price a full recovery.  Tampa Bay will need him as they continue to compete in a surprisingly strong American League East. So far this season, Price is 1-4 with a 5.24 ERA.  That's obviously very un-Price-like.  In his Cy Young season last year, Price went 20-5 with a 2.56 ERA.  In his career, he is 62-34 with a 3.26 ERA.  At some point Price will certainly turn things around, but the question is whether he can do so soon enough to make a positive impact on the team going forward this season.
