Price: I'm a go for Tuesday



Rays LHP David Price recovered quickly from his over-toweling incident and said after throwing a bullpen session on Sunday morning he will make his next start as scheduled: "I'm a go for Tuesday.''

He did say he'll go easy on towels Tuesday, or get help from his bosses: "I might have Joe (Maddon) do it; Andrew (Friedman)'s too short."

Maddon said LHP Matt Moore is also scheduled to work Tuesday in the game against the Orioles in Sarasota, which will make for an interesting showcase of their young lefties. Maddon said that even though Moore is making his first appearance on their 11th day of games, the Rays are confident he can be stretched out enough to start the regular season.

Price, who had to leave Thursday's game after causing his neck to spasm by towling off too vigorously, said he was confident it wouldn't be much of a setback. "I knew our athletic training staff would get me back on the field,'' he said.
