Price won't pitch in World Baseball Classic



AL Cy Young Award winner David Price said he would be honored to be chosen for Team USA but will not be able to pitch in the upcoming World Baseball Classic.

"No chance I would play in that,'' he said via text message. "It would be a huge honor though.''

Asked about the possibility, Price responded  "Don't think I'm allowed" to by the Rays.

Further, he said, for him it was "way too early for a pitcher to be game ready like they are.''

The WBC will be contested during the spring, with the U.S. team's first-round games March 7-10th.
