David Price made the decision not to play in the 2020 MLB season, which would have been his first season with the Los Angeles Dodgers. His absence was due to the fact that the jug did not want to risk his health or his family with a coronavirus infection (COVID-19), because the situation was critical. And while the next campaign was expected to take action, reports say David Price may not play for the Dodgers in 2021.
Dodgers manager Dave Roberts revealed on Thursday, December 17, that he does not guarantee that David Price will present the team next year. The helmsman suggested that the pitcher still feels insecure about the situation of the coronavirus pandemic.
“David is very in tune with what’s going on. He’s very smart. As things get clearer, David will make a decision for himself and his family,” Roberts told Bill Plunkett of the Orange County Register.
Recently, David Price spoke on Twitter that the “plan” is to launch again in 2021, in response to a fan who asked him about it. But it seems that increasing the number of virus cases in some cities with coronavirus is already changing their decision.
During the 2019 season, with the Boston Red Sox, David Price recorded a record of 7-5 win-losses, as well as an ERA 4.28, in 22 starts. In addition, he hit 128 opponents and went only 32 in 107.1 innings.
