The MLB Trade Deadline is just around the corner which means that David Price’s situation in Tampa Bay will see resolution sooner rather than later as hte deadline is just hours away.
Teams are continuing to get in on the Price trade talks in the 11th hour as the Jon Lester trade to the Oakland A’s has not only set a market value for Price but has given teams a sense of urgency to make a deal happen.
According to Jon Morosi from FOX Sports, the Dodgers and Rays continue to talk about David Price trade which means one could be happening very soon.

This doesn’t mean a deal will indeed happen, bu the fact that the trade talks between Tampa Bay and Los Angeles hve been revived means that the two sides might end up reaching a deal that lands Price on what could be the best staff in baseball if he lands there.
The same can be said about the Detroit Tigers though, as the two sides there have been in contact and a deal between the two makes a lot of sense — perhaps more so than a deal with the Dodgers does.
