Dodgers Pitcher David Price Opts Out of 2020 MLB Season

Los Angeles Dodgers pitcher David Price has chosen to opt out of the 2020 MLB season, the left-hander announced Saturday.

"After considerable thought and discussion with my family and the Dodgers, I have decided it is in the best interest of my health and my family's health for me not to play this season," Price wrote on social media. "I will miss my teammates and will be cheering for them throughout the season and on to a World Series victory."

Price, a 12-year MLB veteran, was preparing to make his debut in Los Angeles after being traded from the Boston Red Sox, along with Mookie Betts, in February.
