New York, New York -- 2K Sports has announced Tampa Bay Rays pitcher David Price will grace the cover of MLB 2K13.

Price, who was named the 2012 American League Cy Young Award winner, edged out Tigers pitcher Justin Verlander for the coveted cover spot. Price is the third consecutive Cy Young Award winner to grace the cover of an MLB 2K game.

"It's a dream come true to appear on the cover of MLB 2K13," said Price, who helped lead the Rays to their fourth 90-win season in the last five years. "I'm looking forward to working with the 2K Sports team again, and welcoming another skilled gamer into 'The Perfect Club.'"

MLB 2K13 will be available on March 5, 2013, for Xbox 360 and PlayStation3.
