Price enters the spring of 2007 as the favorite to go first overall in the draft. Blessed with a perfect pitcher's frame and a power repertoire to match, Price might be the best college pitcher since Mark Prior, who began his college career at Vanderbilt. Price of course is a lefty, which adds to his value. His natural athleticism allows him to repeat his smooth delivery very well, and his fastball sits in the 89-93 range and he can touch the 96-97 range without much extra effort. His slider is also considered a plus-pitch, and he's working on improving his solid changeup. On the mound, he offers a very cool and collected demeanor, and he doesn't get rattled easily. Some would like to see him be more aggressive at times, but that is a minor gripe. He has spent the summers of 2005 and 2006 pitching for Team USA, and this past summer he posted very impressive numbers, allowing only one earned run over 44 innings of work (0.20 ERA) while striking out 61 and walking only 7. Collectively over his two years at Vanderbilt Price has struck out 247 batters in just over 173 innings of work, a tribute to his stuff and ability to miss bats. In high school Price was also a very talented hitter, and would have been selected in the first three rounds had he not made his intentions to attend Vanderbilt clear to scouts.
