07:33 AM ET 12.05 | Just where will David Price wind up in 2014 -- or will he move at all? [The] sweepstakes is expected to heat up later this week, multiple executives with interest in the left-handed ace told Yahoo Sports, as the Tampa Bay Rays begin to survey the market for the former Cy Young winner and consider whether to trade him. The Seattle Mariners, Los Angeles Dodgers, Los Angeles Angels, Pittsburgh Pirates, Texas Rangers, Arizona Diamondbacks and Toronto Blue Jays are among the teams that not only have an interest in Price but believe they can put together the sort of package to pry Price from the Rays, sources said. The 28-year-old Price immediately would be the most sought-after name on the trade market, and teams expect him to net a far bigger package than the Wil Myers-headlined deal.

It's hard to imagine the Rays dealing in division, but I suppose Pineda might be of some interest to the Rays if he's actually healthy...still young and cost controlled.

Have to agree. I don't see that happening for the reasons stated.

With all of the teams listen above the Dodgers probably has the best young talent in their farm system for trade value.

The Pirates are in the running with their top level farm system. The big question is will they be willing to part with any of their top prospects for Price?. Time will tell!

For the Pirates it will come down to 2 years of Price vs. 6 years of James Tillion/Cole. That's a tough call!!!

The Rays will not trade Price within the division. Period.

Not quite. The Rays will want a mix - 1 MLB ready prospect and a few more to stock the system.

Kinda how I see it where the Rangers are concerned. They basically have their starting rotation under contract for the next 3-4 years. I don't see them in this unless they are willing to let go of one (or two) of those guys... along with a prospect or two.

I see the Angels as the prime contender.

the angels could bring in to the offer,players like Kendrick/Aybar/trumbo/Conger/eannetta/garrett richards,should that be enough for David Price?

i mean IF the angels really wanted to compete in the 2014 season,,,,,,but wait a minute w/all those players gone,where the halos would get their run production?Albert Pujols/and Josh Hamilton Mike Trout won't be enough offense in halos lineup!!!!!!
