ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. -- Left-hander David Price and the Tampa Bay Rays have agreed to terms for the 2014 season, avoiding arbitration. Price, the 2012 American League Cy Young Award winner, will earn $14 million next season. He's a three-time All-Star, and he went 10-8 last season with a 3.33 ERA in 27 starts despite missing 44 games with a left triceps strain. Upon returning from the disabled list July 2, he went 9-4 with a 2.53 ERA in 18 starts with 102 strikeouts and 13 walks. The deal represents the highest one-year salary the Rays have offered any player. First baseman Carlos Pena earned $10.25 million in 2010. Price, 28, is a six-year veteran who's Tampa Bay's all-time leader in ERA (3.19) and winning percentage (.645), and he ranks second behind James Shields in victories (71), games started (147), innings pitched (973), strikeouts (876) and complete games (eight). Price earned $10.1125 million last season and was projected to earn at least $13 million after arbitration this offseason. The arbitration deadline is 1 p.m. Friday.
