Pitcher, Vanderbilt University

After tearing up the SEC for three seasons at Vandy, Price signed a six-year deal with Tampa Bay worth $8.5 million, including a $5.6 million signing bonus. Price was called up to the big club in his first professional season, making his debut on Sept. 14, 2008, and made his presence felt during the Rays' magical postseason run to the World Series. In the ALCS against Boston, Price earned the win in Game 2 and the save in Game 7.
