ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. -- AL Cy Young Award winner David Price will rejoin the Tampa Bay Rays' rotation Tuesday night at Houston.

Rays manager Joe Maddon announced the news before Friday night's game with Detroit, saying the team feels "pretty strongly" that the left-hander is ready to return from a strained left triceps.

Price went on the disabled list for the first time in his career May 16. He made two minor league rehab starts with Class A Charlotte.

Price struggled this year before getting hurt, going 1-4 with a 5.24 ERA. He was 20-5 with a 2.56 ERA last season.

Also, right-hander Alex Cobb, who was struck in the right ear by a ball hit by Kansas City's Eric Hosmer on June 15, played catch during batting practice.
