COVID-19: Mike Trout is Considering Sitting Out 2020 Season

85th MLB All Star Game

Today, Spring Training 2.0 or Summer Camp as many people call it has officially begun for MLB teams as league commissioner Rob Manfred hopes to have the regular season start in a few weeks. However, there’s a possibility that baseball will be played without its best player.

Los Angeles Angels superstar outfielder Mike Trout expressed a lot of concern on Friday about taking part in the 2020 MLB season amid the coronavirus pandemic because his wife, Jessica, is pregnant with the couple's first child.

"Honestly, I still don't feel that comfortable. It's gonna be tough," Trout told reporters. "I've got to be really cautious these next couple weeks. I don't want to test positive. I don't want to bring it back to my wife. It's a tough situation we're in."

Trout is obviously one of the most popular stars in the MLB. It would be a huge blow not just for the Angels, but for the entire sport if he doesn’t play this season.
