How David Price became ‘the pitcher Boston signed’ | NBC Sports Boston

Evan Drellich does a good job getting more info on Price’s recent adjustment. He also shines light on why Sale and Price like pitching to Leon.

Can’t forget his catcher, Sandy Leon, either. Price, like Chris Sale, does not attend the pre-start meeting with the coaches and the catchers, as most pitchers do. Even in the day and age of scouting reports, a relatively empty mind can help allow for focus on the pitch — particularly if the guy behind the plate has a supreme grasp on what to call.

“He puts in the work, he puts in the time,” Price said of Leon. “He now has enough time I feel like in the American League to know all these hitters. You know, he thinks back there. He doesn’t take his at-bats out to the field. He does a really good job.”
