as declared in According to the source, Price is not in any trouble.
There are different rules in place for pitchers according to whether they are working from a full windup or from a set position.
Price was first informed about the umpires’ concern in spring training of 2016, according to a source familiar with the conversations.
MLB’s memo to Red Sox pitcher David Price two seasons ago has now become a rule requiring pitchers to alert umpires of their pitching delivery when a runner is on third base.
But those pitchers will probably have to clarify their intent for umpires, just as Price has been asked to do by Major League Baseball, whenever there is a runner at third base.
as declared in Mandatory Credit: David Richard-USA TODAY SportsA new rule requires pitchers to alert umpires of their delivery, which came about as a result of the wind-up of Boston Red Sox lefty David Price.
Call it the “Price Rule.”The rule states that pitchers are now required to alert the umpire of their pitching delivery when there is a runner on third base.
Concern from umpires about being able to properly identify whether Boston Red Sox pitcher David Price is throwing from a full wind-up or a set position has resulted in a new rule this season.
It may appear that Price is being targeted with this new rule, but other pitchers replicating his delivery – including teammate Drew Pomeranz – is what sparked MLB to take action.
Price vehemently disagrees and is baffled by why umpires are taking issue with a wind-up that he’s used for most of his career.
as declared in Getting in Price’s head and either making him pitch exclusively out of the stretch or changing his wind up could easily have adverse effects.
Specifically, they’ll be looking at his wind up, citing similarities between how he sets up when in the stretch vs. when he’s in the windup.
Instead, he and a few other pitchers with similar wind ups will have to declare whether they are pitching from the stretch or the wind up when a runner is on third.
I think Price is the most interesting pitcher, though, even if he doesn’t have as wide a range of potential outcomes as someone like Eduardo Rodriguez or Drew Pomeranz.
My first instinct whenever MLB gets involved with anything is that it has to do with pace of play.
