Mike Leake opting out of playing this season

Steve Gilbert of MLB.com reports Mike Leake is opting out of playing the 2020 MLB season.

Fantasy Impact

Leake is the first player to publicly state he won’t be playing amidst the COVID-19 pandemic. Players who are considered “high risk” will still be paid but that doesn’t apply to those who “only” have high risk family members. We expect there will be others who choose to follow Leake’s path. This decision all but ensures Zac Gallen a rotation spot.

Mike Leake may not be ready for Opening Day

Mike Leake (wrist) may not be ready to join the rotation for Opening Day, according to manager Torey Lovullo.

Fantasy Impact

Leake fractured his non-throwing wrist this offseason, and has been able to work in bullpen sessions. He hasn't been able to see any game action as of yet, so his status for Opening Day is squarely in doubt. If Leake is not a part of the rotation at the start of the regular season, Merrill Kelly may fill in at the back end of the rotation.

Mike Leake was effective again on Friday versus the Reds, giving up four runs (two earned) on five hits over six innings pitched.

Fantasy Impact

Leake struck out five and walked one as the D'Backs went on to lose 4-3. The oft-dismissed right-hander has now thrown three quality starts in his last four tries. lowering his ERA to 4.59 on the season. However, it remains difficult to get excited about Leake for fantasy purposes as he is no stranger to blowup games here and there.

Mike Leake throws a quality start on Sunday afternoon

Mike Leake threw a quality start on Sunday versus the Reds, tossing 6 1/3 innings of two-run ball while striking out three.

Fantasy Impact

Leake allowed seven hits and didn't walk anyone. The 31-year-old has allowed eight runs over his past three starts, which isn't bad at all, but he doesn't have any strikeout upside. Fantasy players can likely find better streaming options this month.
