The defending World Series champion Washington Nationals will host the New York Yankees in the first game of the 2020 Major League Baseball season on July 23, followed by the San Francisco Giants traveling to play the rival Los Angeles Dodgers. Price wrote that he believes it is in his best interest health-wise to skip the season. "I'm sorry I won't be playing for you this year, but I look forward to representing you next year".
The Yankees are scheduled to play Major League Baseball's first game of the season with a 7:08 p.m. matchup against the defending World Series Champion Washington Nationals at Nationals Park on Thursday, July 23. As a five-time All-Star, he won the American League (AL) Cy Young Award in 2012, became the MLB strikeout leader in 2014, and won the World Series Championship with the Red Sox in 2018. They were bundled as a package deal to the Dodgers before the 2020 season. Ryan Zimmerman of the Washington Nationals, Mike Leake of the Arizona Diamondbacks, Ian Desmond of the Colorado Rockies, and others all made the same decision.
With the move, Price potentially sacrifices $11.84 million of his 2020 salary. The document left behaviour away from stadiums up to the individual.
JEE, NEET deferred to September
Union Government has postponed medical and engineering entrance examinations NEET and JEE in view of COVID-19 pandemic. According to the report, students can also make corrections within their applications between July 4 and July 15.
Saturday morning, hours before Price's announcement, Dodgers manager Dave Roberts said discussions were still taking place with players contemplating whether to opt out. "I just don't want us to lose the traction, the momentum, the conversations that we've had over the last month".
