Tigers, Porcello drive up Rays' Price?

The Detroit Tigers are poised to give first-round draft pick Rick Porcello a $7 million, major-league contract. Because Porcello is a client of super agent Scott Boras, he fell to the 27th pick in the draft.

That will factor into Tampa Bay's price for No. 1 overall pick David Price, the Vanderbilt pitcher.

Teams have until midnight Wednesday to sign their draft picks.
