Tampa Bay Rays lefty David Price continues to thrive, shutting out the Toronto Blue Jays Sunday on four hits, striking out nine. It was his first complete game. Price, who seemed a bit undervalued in ESPN average live drafts going in the 17th round, isn't undervalued anymore. His 2.20 ERA was more than twice as high (4.42) in 2009.

• Meanwhile, Rick Porcello is struggling, as he permitted six runs in four innings in Texas Sunday. Porcello entered the week with a 4.09 ERA, then gave up 12 runs in 8 1/3 innings in two starts. Porcello has allowed 33 hits and a .393 batting average against, and should be benched by fantasy owners until he turns things around.
