Excited for Dodgers debut: David Price

Another player overshadowed by the addition of Mookie Betts is starter David Price. The left-handed veteran was included in the Betts deal as an essential salary dump, but he could prove to be a key starter in the Dodgers rotation, pitching behind Clayton Kershaw and Walker Buehler.

While the Dodgers have depth in their pitching due to an impressive group of young arms ready to take on greater responsibilities, there are some question marks whether they are ready to start on a championship-level team as soon as this season.

Beyond Kershaw, Buehler, and Price, the Dodgers will be relying on Julio Urias and Alex Wood in the back of the rotation. They need Price to provide stability and prove he still has big innings left in his 34-year-old arm. If the Dodgers advance to the postseason again, the veteran southpaw will be counted on to pitch in the clutch as he has done many times in his career before.

Price already endeared himself to the Dodgers organization by donating $1,000 of June income to each minor leaguer in the system. It was an amazing act. And it’s too bad fans can’t be in attendance to show appreciation for his goodwill when he makes his Dodgers debut.
