At this point, can we just call David Price the Dodgers’ unofficial fifth starter? After Monday’s 9-4 victory over the Cardinals, the club announced that Price would start another bullpen game on Tuesday.

This will be the third game as the opener for the life-long starter.
In 313 career starts, the 2012 AL Cy Young award winner has 149-80 record with a 3.32 ERA. In his last outing, Price recorded his 2,000th career strikeout, 84th on baseball’s all-time Ks list.
Moreover, in all likelihood, this will be DP’s last start for now. Right-hander Tony Gonsolin is set to return from the injured list and join the rotation some time on next week’s road trip.
