Worth noting

David Price's first start with the Tigers was playing on the clubhouse TVs in Oakland on Tuesday.

"It was weird with the orange thing on top of his hat," Maddon said. "Otherwise, the colors were very close."

Price took out a full-page ad in Tuesday's Tampa Bay Times, thanking the Rays organization and fans.

"It was very nice of him, very cool that he recognized all the guys the way he did," said Maddon. "One of the best teammates I've ever been around."

• Maddon reiterated that Wil Myers (right wrist) could see game action by this weekend. Myers worked out again Tuesday in Port Charlotte, Fla.
