The Boomers signed free agent right hander Dexter Price on March 26, 2013.
Price, 23, will help solidify the back-end of the bullpen once again in 2014 after serving as the closer for the Boomers during the Championship run. The 6-foot-7 righty with a unique side arm delivery was stellar for Manager Jamie Bennett in 2013, earning a 6-1 record and 16 saves in 41.2 innings of work. The former Arizona Diamondbacks farmhand posted a 2.16 ERA in a Boomers uniform with 36 strikeouts against just seven walks.
Price joined the Boomers pitching staff after a pair of seasons in professional ball. The Arizona Diamondbacks drafted Price in the 30th round of the 2011 Major League Baseball First-Year Player Draft, and he spent two seasons with the team’s rookie affiliate, the Missoula Osprey. The 6-foot-7 Colorado native went 6-4 in his stint with Missoula with a 5.09 ERA. Over the course of 104.1 professional innings, Price has racked up 75 strikeouts against just 35 walks.
Before turning pro, Price played for the University of South Carolina-Beaufort, where he recorded a 6-3 record with two complete games, one shutout and a 2.39 ERA in 2011, which earned him a Sun Conference First-Team All-Conference selection. Price spent his first two years of college ball at Auburn where he amassed a 7-3 record and 5.49 ERA as a Tiger with 50 punchouts against just 23 walks in 77.1 innings. Before entering college, Price was drafted by the Milwaukee Brewers in the 43rd round of the 2008 draft out of Air Academy High School in Colorado.
