Tough day for MLB: Price out, Freeman positive, Tanaka hurt
July 5, 2020
Freddie Freeman tests positive for COVID-19. Masahiro Tanaka gets hit in the head by a line drive. David Price announces he won't play this season.
On this Fourth of July, even the return of baseball didn't offer much cause for celebration.
As teams prepared to start their pandemic-shortened season, sobering examples of the game's potential danger took place at camps across the country.
Major League Baseball is getting ready for a 60-game season that won't include Price, a former Cy Young Award winner who was traded from the Boston Red Sox to the Los Angeles Dodgers in February.
