Buster Posey receptor de los @SFGiants sopesa si jugar o no en la temporada 2020 de @MLB. Mike Leake de los @Dbacks, Ian Desmond de los @Rockies, Ryan Zimmerman y Joe Ross de los @Nationals, y David Price de los @Dodgers no van a participar en la zafra de este año.⚾️⚾️⚾️🇺🇸


Notable players to opt out for the season David Price Ryan Zimmerman Joe Ross Ian Desmond Mike Leake There is going to be more to come. A couple of major names considering.


@FanDuel_Support That's fine with me. Just saying you guys have a player missing. Also under normal circumstances, unless he were hurt or getting rested, there's no way Ian Desmond doesn't bat 5th or 6th versus a bad lefty.


David Price has opted out of the 2020 season. Citing health concerns and his family, the southpaw joins Ryan Zimmerman, Joe Ross, Ian Desmond and Mike Leake on list of players who've chosen not to take part. Unless considered high risk, he forfeits his salary this season

@FanDuel_Support are you guys letting the Rockies go with 8 players in the 8:06 MLB sim? Don't see Ian Desmond listed 🤷‍♂️ https://t.co/UXfIzJPvi3


(Jokes aside, mad respect to Ian Desmond, David Price, and everybody else putting safety before the game. Y'all are the real ones.)




@BBennett1992 @nfldraftscout He’s not the first thou. Ian Desmond. Ryan Zimmerman.


Nothing but respect for @DAVIDprice24, Ian Desmond, Ryan Zimmerman, Mike Leake & any other players making the difficult choice to opt out of the MLB season. In this life, health, safety and family come first. Baseball will be back at 100%, just like the rest of our country.


@DAVIDprice24 Respect to David Price. Unlike Ian Desmond, he respectfully opted out without calling MLB and it's fans racist, evil, and unfair.


@BNightengale Respect to David Price. Unlike Ian Desmond, he respectfully opted out without calling MLB and it's fans racist, evil, and unfair.


#GreatTake Ian Desmond - every @MLB player, owner and fan should give this a read. Huge respect - even tho you kill my @SFGiants I have a new appreciation for the challenges that face the sport i worship. #TheStruggleContinues @jaysonst @PeterGammons @PavlovicNBCS https://t.co/9lO2f0xYZ4

Big respect to David Price. He opted out without calling MLB racist, evil, and unfair - unlike Ian Desmond. https://t.co/82mOPOuLPa


@JeffPassan Big respect to David Price. He opted out without calling MLB racist, evil, and unfair - unlike Ian Desmond.


Jugadores que rechazaron participar este año en las Grandes Ligas, hasta el momento: 1) Nacionales: Ryan Zimmerman y Joe Ross 2) Dbacks: Mike Leak 3) Rockies: Ian Desmond 4) Dodgers: David Price #MLB #Covid_19 Otros peloteros declinarán este año?


@mbottmore @DanClarkSports Mike Leake, Joe Ross, Ryan Zimmerman, Ian Desmond, Tyson Ross, David Price, and Eric Young (coach)


Nothing but respect for David Price, Ian Desmond, Ryan Zimmerman, Joe Ross, Mike Leake, and every other player/coach that chooses to opt out. Ownership/union conflict aside, I'm not really sold they should be playing at all.
