David Price didn’t pitch for the Los Angeles Dodgers in 2020 after he opted out of the season due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
Could he do the same in 2021?
Price, who was part of the trade that sent Mookie Betts to LA from the Boston Red Sox back in February, hasn’t committed to Major League Baseball’s 2021 campaign.
Manager Dave Roberts on Thursday said he’s unsure of Price’s decision.
“David is very in tune with what’s going on, is very intelligent,” Roberts told reporters, via Dodgers beat writer Bill Plunkett. “… As things become more clear, David will make a choice for him and his family.”
Price has yet to make his Dodgers debut, and it’s possible he may not in 2021.
