I’m scared of Corona. Big leaguer who gave up $23 million for two years in a row.
Colorado Rockies outfielder Ian Desmond said he will not participate in the season this year due to concerns over “Corona 19” following last year. He will give up his two-year salary of $23 million 파워볼사이트
Desmond announced on his Instagram on the 22nd (Korea time) that he would not participate this season. “We’ve had a tough conversation for months. I asked many questions and thought a lot. As of now, he has decided not to attend the 2021 season. I have a greater desire to play baseball with my family than to go back to the current (corona) situation. “I will continue to train and see how the situation develops.
Desmond did not participate in the 2020 season, saying he would spend time with his family when the Korona 19 incident occurred last year. He voluntarily expressed his intention not to attend the meeting, so he did not receive a single 15 million dollars in annual salary last year. The 2021 season is the last season of his contract with Colorado, and Desmond’s annual salary is $8 million.
MLB Traders said, “Desmond left open the possibility of returning later in the season, but Desmond’s Colorado career is certain to end.” Colorado has $15 million in club options for the 2022 season, but it is unlikely that they will implement the option even if Desmond returns to the team in the middle of this year,” he said. If Colorado makes a buyout, it will pay $2 million.
Colorado is the only club that has not signed an FA in the offseason. He traded Nolan Arenado to St. Louis, causing resentment among his fans. It remains to be seen whether Colorado, which saved Desmond’s salary, will reinvest in recruiting other players.
“It’s not surprising that more players will be out of the season like Desmond in the next few weeks,” MLB Traders said. More than 20 players were absent last year. The current Korona 19 infection rate in the U.S. is higher than last summer. “Other players are also sympathetic to Desmond’s concerns about returning to the ballpark at this point.
