The players have spoken and they really like David Price … again.

For the second time in three years, the Rays left-hander was the voted the American League’s Most Outstanding Pitcher during the Players Choice Awards. The award was announced Monday night on the MLB Network.

Price, who also won the award in 2010, was 20-5 this past season with a 2.56 ERA. The ERA led the AL and his wins were tied for the most with Jered Weaver of the Los Angeles Angels.

Price was picked over the other two finalists – Weaver and Chris Sale of the Chicago White Sox.

Detroit’s Justin Verlander, who figures to be Price’s biggest opponent in the AL Cy Young Award voting, was not among the top-three vote getters.

The finalists for the Cy Young Award will be announced at 6 p.m. Wednesday on the MLB Network, and the award will be announced at 6 p.m. on Nov. 14 on the MLB Network.

The Cy Young Award is voted on by members of the Baseball Writers’ Association of America.
