"We will work with Major League Baseball and our community partners to resume play as soon as it is safe to do so".

"MLB will continue to evaluate ongoing events leading up to the start of the season", the statement continued.

Nothing is more important to us than the health and safety of our players, employees and fans.

Commissioner Rob Manfred met with Tony Clark, the executive director of the Major League Baseball Players' Association, to discuss the potential issues sure to arise as a result of the coronavirus shutdown. We understand that it's serious, but the Yankees have a ton of resources in the area. Sánchez, at 36, felt his arm was in a good place after a solid start last week.

Yankees manager Aaron Boone, general manager Brian Cashman and the team's training and conditioning staffers also will stay in Tampa, according to "I don't think any of us know what's coming or how long this is going to last", said Nationals starter Patrick Corbin on Thursday, relaying the same confusion felt by his teammates.

"We've tried to map out the best next steps, and we all recognize it's going to take a lot of give and take, with understanding and compassion and empathy along the way".

"All the players, we understand now, completely, the severity of what we're dealing with here", Scherzer said. No one has ever faced anything like this. We're getting information and updates. "So, at this point, we can't get too far ahead of ourselves". The Reds and MLB don't know when baseball activities will. You never want to miss time. A delayed season, of course, brings many complications, and a truncated season takes those complications to the next level, specifically in regards to service time and how it affects player salaries. Beyond uncertainty surrounding the coronavirus, the concern for pitchers' arms is another big reason Major League Baseball couldn't just pick an Opening Day date and stick to it. Major League Baseball will have to consult clubs, who will have to consult their pitchers, who will have to be confident they won't hurt themselves.
