I have no idea why they would give it to him over Niemann though. Niemann is the better spec, better pitcher, and has pitched better in the Spring. It should go to Niemann if they aren't giving it to Price.

They will have Price up here sometime this year, it is just going to depend on when. They are controling his innings so he is fresh late. Niemann has a lot of upside and has looked good. Price is better than almost the entire staff, so someone will go for him, but it may not be Niemann if he lives up to his potential. IMO, they are hoping Niemann pitches great and they can move him.
