While his teammates were on the Dodger Stadium field on Saturday for their second scheduled workout ahead of the pandemic-shortened 2020 season, David Price announced he will not be participating.

First baseman Ryan Zimmerman of the World Series champion Washington Nationals, Colorado outfielder Ian Desmond and Arizona pitcher Mike Leake are among those who have already said they're out this year.

Price posted his announcement on Twitter on Saturday while the Dodgers were holding their second official workout of training camp at Dodger Stadium.

Leyou Technologies now owns Digital Extremes, the developer of Warframe , as well as Gears Tactics developer Splash Damage. Talks are ongoing and a final decision has not been made, and other bidders can still emerge, the report concluded.

"Once it became clear we were unable to hold this year's All-Star festivities, we wanted to award the Dodgers with the next available All-Star Game, which is 2022", said baseball Commissioner Robert D. Manfred Jr said in a statement.

The 2021 edition is set to be played in Atlanta at the Braves' Truist Park. "And Go Dodgers! Love, David Price".

Maybe a year off will help get healthy given the issues Price has dealt with over the past few seasons. "I'm sorry I won't be playing for you this year, but look forward to representing you next year". The 34-year-old is forfeiting $11.9 million by opting out, according to Brodie Brazil of NBC Sports California.
