David Price records first career save vs. Rockies
David Price fired a scoreless ninth inning against the Rockies on Thursday to record his first career save.
Advice: Seriously. Price picked up his first-ever save in the 325th regular season appearance of his big-league career. The 35-year-old lefty, who did record a postseason save as a rookie with the Rays back in 2008, was summoned to protect a two-run lead in the ninth inning, with Kenley Jansen presumably unavailable after closing out two of their last three games. He gave up back-to-back singles to open the frame, which put the tying runs on base, before striking out pinch-hitter Trevor Story. He appeared to settle in after that, whiffing Garrett Hampson, and also coaxing a game-ending ground out from Raimel Tapia to preserve the victory. Fantasy managers shouldn't count on Price converting too many save opportunities moving forward, but he's clearly embraced the non-traditional relief role the Dodgers have presented to him this season.
