San Francisco Giants wide receiver Buster Posey plans to withdraw from the truncated 2020 MLB season based on the evolution of the coronavirus pandemic over the next two weeks.
“I think there are still reservations on my part,” said Posey during a team training session at Oracle Park on Saturday. “I want to see how things are progressing here over the next few weeks. I think it might be a bit naive or stupid not to assess what is going on around you. Not only around you here, but paying attention to what’s going on in the country and different parts of the county. Obviously, unprecedented times right now. Most certainly, I thought about it and talked about it a lot with my wife. ”
Arizona Diamondback pitcher Mike Leake and Washington Nationals first goal Ryan Zimmerman are two of the biggest names who have officially decided not to play this year.
“I’m going to watch what’s going on and continue to communicate with my wife and pay attention to what’s going on around me here at the baseball stadium and what’s going on in the country,” said Posey. “I would be surprised if you asked a player if he gave you a hard answer,” No way, I will never retire “. ”
