David Price’s peers in Major League Baseball have recognized the lefthander’s remarkable 2010 season by awarding him the Players Choice Award for Outstanding AL Pitcher. The Players Choice Awards, sponsored by The Major League Baseball Players Association, annually honor the outstanding player, rookie, pitcher and comeback player in each league, as well as Player of the Year and Man of the Year awards without regard to league. Balloting for the Players Choice Awards was conducted in September among members of the Major League Baseball Players Association.
Previous Rays to be honored include Carlos Pena (2007, AL Comeback Player) and Evan Longoria (2008, AL Outstanding Rookie).
Price, a contendor for the AL Cy Young Award was 19-6 with a 2.72 ERA this season for the AL East champions.
