Price scratched from Saturday start due to illness
LHP David Price was sent home from the Trop tonight and scratched from his Saturday start due to illness.
Price had said earlier Friday he had been sick on Thursday and was only feeling marginally better, and would not have been able to pitch Friday.
The Rays are hoping he is well enough to start Sunday. If he does, however, that likely would knock him out of Tuesday's All-Star Game; starters who work Sunday are typically unavailable to pitch again Tuesday so they are replaced on the active All-Star roster but still honored as All-Stars.
