I certainly don't follow MLB as closely as I used to but I thought that David Price was almost certainly going to be a Ray at the start of the season:

Niemann is out of options, so I think he gets the spot. I think Price will be up very soon, though.

As the board's resident Rays fan, I am not surprised at all. Most of the talk around here has been that the Rays don't want to rush him and feel that he still needs a little seasoning in AAA ball. After all, he did go from the Florida State League to the major league playoffs in a little more than a month last season. His numbers from this spring show that he only needs a minor amount of seasoning and is expected to be back on the Rays by the beginning of June.
