Step right up and see which prospects are in and which aging vets are hanging on and who didn't make it.  (Hint about the latter: Tim Tebow).

Lol, Tebow? There are many other players that deserve talking about who didn’t make it. Tebow just isn’t good.

Official sitting out the season list so far:

Ryan Zimmerman

Mike Leake

Joe Ross

Here is latest Zimmerman blurb:


Ryan Zimmerman has officially opted out of the 2020 season.

So has his teammate Joe Ross. MASN's Mark Zuckerman writes that both players are "uncomfortable with the health risks posed to players and staffers during this unprecedented attempt to play through a global pandemic." Washington re-signed Zimmerman to a one-year, $2 million contract in January after he batted .257/.321/.415 with six home runs and 27 RBI over 190 plate appearances during an injury-plagued 2019. Zimmerman's absence this year will clear out a bit more playing time for Eric Thames and Howie Kendrick.

It was explained in the blurb before this too that Zimmerman has a 3 month old baby at home and his mother has advancing MS and is, in his words, "very high risk" so it was good to be thinking of his family first.  This was suppose to be his final year anyway.  Why risk it playing Russian roulette with your loved ones.

Also one of the first NBA players to get covid back in April said he STILL hasn't gotten all of his sense of smell back as of yet.  There are possible long term or perhaps permanent effects to this disease for younger people who survive the worst effects.

(FYI the info the Leake has decided not to play this season was in the Joe Ross blurb).
