ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. — Tampa Bay Rays ace David Price said he hopes to stay with the team as the trade deadline approaches.

Major league clubs have until Thursday to make trades without putting players through waivers.

Price said before tonight's game against Milwaukee "hopefully" he'll remain with the Rays. He said we'll "have some answers here in the next couple of days."

Price has won sixth straight starts going into his next scheduled outing Wednesday against the Brewers. The former AL Cy Young winner is 11-7 with a 3.08 ERA in 22 starts this season.
