Players opting out of MLB season

Recommended Posts

Yankees here too! I was pretty pumped when I saw they finally agreed on something! 60 games is better than zero games. I wonder what kind of precautions they will have! I'm good with watching on TV too, for this season.

So now that we know there will be a shorter season, let's guess how many players will opt out.


So far 4 that I've seen. I don't even know any of the 4. Mike Leake, Ryan Zimmerman, Joe Ross and Ian Desmond. They each have given reasons. How many more do you think will opt out?

It is understandable if a player in any sport doesn't feel safe enough to play at this point. The shorter season and the high risk of contracting coronavirus may be too much for these MLB players, and possibly, more of them could follow suit!

I wouldn't doubt if more "better known" players opted out too. I can't even imagine the precautions the league will have to have in place to keep it safe. I wonder if the players will even be able to spend time with their family.
