    Has mental health issues but became a fan favorite in 2016/17 and was looking like a great platoon OF.

    I like to think of it as more of a QB spike during a 2-minute drill

    so every prospect who had a chance of debuting this year will he held off or burn a year of service time?

    Yeah but the impact of a top prospect is greater than ever...one win is 2.5x as valuable. Would be really interesting to see what teams do

    Because I figured he would at least be on the active roster, thought he was one of their bright young players

    if a season happens, that is a pretty big blow to the D-backs.

    Seemed like a lock at the end of their rotation. And he provides reliable depth.

    Of course Mike Leake "sucks." His ERA was over 4 last year. But for the D-backs, he provided value to their rotation imhv

    this will not impact the dbacks in the slightest because there isn’t actually going to be a season

    I think Bro is overstating how big of an impact this will be. Mike Leake is not a very good pitcher anymore and his big skill is being able to take the ball every 5 days. In a scenario where the season is only 60 games that skill is not as valuable when you are not looking at needing ~1000 IP from your rotation.

    Part of that also depends on whether players can avoid in-season outbreaks. Depth starters start looking more and more attractive when you’re down a starter or two.

    Sample size and variance swamps everything,
    but by the time Mike Leake starts looking like a great option it likely means the season has gone up in smoke already.

    put in a really nice stretch in the second half last year. Hope he and his family are well.

    Ryan Zimmerman floated retirement instead of showing up/opting out as well. He’s got two young kids and a baby who is a few months old. I’m sure he’ll make it back to the stadium once there are fans but sucks he doesn’t get to leave on his terms with a proper send-off.

    after winning a title, don't think I'd be playing this season either. But I doubt major players from other teams start bailing on this season.

    Zimmerman signed a $2 million deal because he wasn’t ready to retire after making something like $130 million over his career. I’m not trying to say that $2 million is nothing, but to him, I just don’t see the benefit of playing.
