Dodgers pitcher David Price sounds off on Major League Baseball
After two Major League Baseball games were cancelled Monday due to a coronavirus outbreak on the Miami Marlins, pitcher David Price made his thoughts known loud and clear early in the afternoon.
Now we REALLY get to see if MLB is going to put players health first. Remember when Manfred said players health was PARAMOUNT?! Part of the reason I’m at home right now is because players health wasn’t being put first. I can see that hasn’t changed.

Price, who opted out of the season in early July, said it was up to the league to see if they truly put players’ health first and foremost.
“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 said on Twitter in early July. “I will miss my teammates and will be cheering for them throughout the season and on to a World Series victory.”
As of now, it’s unclear where the league will head with two games now cancelled due to coronavirus. But for some in baseball, it’s time to change things.
