Worth noting

• Price was still digesting the information on the new home-plate collision rule that was approved by Major League Baseball on Monday. The rule will ban "the most egregious collisions," by disallowing baserunners to deviate in their path to initiate contact with a catcher or any player covering the plate on a play.

"I've been given a summary on what's being considered," Price said on Tuesday. "We're definitely going to have a lot more discussion going forward. We have to make sure the interpretation is consistent with the rules."
