Former Bulls pitcher David Price and outfielder Fernando Perez were named the Tampa Bay Rays' Minor League Players of the Year after last night's game at Tropicana Field. Perez went 1-for-3 during the Rays' 11-1 rout of the Twins.
Perez hit .288 in 129 games for the Bulls this season.
With the Rays, Perez is hitting .244 in 41 at bats: two home runs, four RBIs, two stolen bases and 10 strike outs.
Price started the season with Single-A Vero Beach, passed through AA Montgomery and pitched two games for the Bulls, going 1-1, before being recalled by the Rays.
In his minor league season, Price won 12 games, lost one, and logged a 2.30 ERA. The 23-year-old was also named MInor League Player of the Year by USA Today last week.
