Rays ace David Price may be on the move this offseason, as everyone who has been paying attention already knows. Obviously many teams have been mentioned as interested, as we're talking about a Cy Young winner still in his prime with two years left of club control. Three have emerged as the most serious suitors, though, according to CBSSports.com insider Jon Heyman: The Mariners, Dodgers and Rangers. Big-time starting pitching prospect Taijuan Walker is the key to any deal that would get Price to the Mariners. Walker, 21, is seen as big-league ready right now. He had a 2.93 ERA, 1.20 WHIP and 160 strikeouts in 141 1/3 innings between Double-A and Triple-A last season. In three big-league starts, Walker went 1-0 with a 3.60 ERA, 1.00 WHIP and 12 strikeouts last September. The Dodgers would possibly be forced to part with highly-touted starter Zach Lee, 2012 first-rounder Corey Seager and/or power-hitting outfielder Joc Pederson.
