Major League Baseball has officially suspended spring training in response to the growing concern surrounding the coronavirus.
Furthermore, the start of the regular season will be delayed at least two weeks. The league will continue to monitor things to see when the best time to resume is. This obviously has a major impact on fantasy baseball leagues. We have officially entered uncharted territory in this regard.
Major League Baseball is expected to suspend spring training in response to the worldwide concerns surrounding the coronavirus.
The league has not yet made an official announcement. Additionally, there are reports that MLB clubs are preparing to enter “work from home” mode. Players and staff are expected to be sent home within the next 48 hours. This likely means the regular season will get off to a delayed start as Opening Day is scheduled for exactly two weeks from today.
Shane McClanahan threw 1 1/3 scoreless innings on Wednesday against the Red Sox.
The 22-year-old lefty allowed two hits and a walk while striking out one. McClanahan reportedly hit triple digits with his fastball in this one. If he can control his walks he has a chance to contribute with the Rays in 2020.
