The 34-year-old Desmond wrote Monday night on Instagram that the ''COVID-19 pandemic has made this baseball season one that is a risk I am not comfortable taking.'' But the biracial slugger also mentioned a myriad of issues within baseball, including racism, sexism, homophobia and socioeconomic concerns.
Analysis: Desmond, who hit .255 with 20 homers in 140 games last season, had been due $5,555,556 for the prorated share of his $15 million salary, part of a $70 million, five-year contract. He is owed $8 million next year, and his deal includes a $15 million team option for 2022 with a $2 million buyout.
