Pitchers follow own workout routines

PORT CHARLOTTE, Fla. -- James Shields was known for his work ethic when he pitched for the Rays, and the other starting pitchers on the team would follow suit. Now that he's gone, David Price said what Shields started will continue.

"These guys, they've all had a taste of the big leagues for the most part," Price said. "We're grown men. [All of the starters] have their workouts, and that's kind of what Shields taught everyone. Get your own routine. Nobody does Shields' routine, because that works for him. I have my own routine. I'll pass it down to whoever wants it, but it might not work for them.

"That's the thing that I feel like, because being a big league pitcher, you have to find your own routine. That's what we've had the last couple of years. Everybody has their own routine and it works for them, and that's what we'll continue to do."
