Report: Mike Trout doesn’t ‘feel comfortable’ playing in 2020

According to a report from Bob Nightengale, baseball’s best player may not play in 2020.

Nightengale reported on Friday that Angels OF Mike Trout, who has a pregnant wife, does not “feel comfortable” playing during the coming season.

“Honestly, I still don’t feel comfortable with the baby coming,’’ Trout said on a Zoom call. “There’s a lot of things on my mind. I’m trying to be the safest and most cautious way to get through the season. It’s going to be tough.’’

“We’re playing it by ear,’’ Trout said. “I think the biggest thing is this is our first child. I’ve got to be there. If I test positive, I can’t see the baby for 14 days. We would be upset. I’ve got to keep Jess safe. I’ve got to keep the baby safe. … I try to talk to my wife every night about this. I know I’m risking myself. I could meet somebody and get this virus. That’s the last thing I want to do.

“I love baseball. I love playing this game. We all want to play. It’s going to come down to how safe we are going to be. If there’s outbreak or something happens these next few weeks, we’ve got to reconsider. …

“I’ve got to do right by my family. A lot of guys have questions. It’s a tough, crazy situation in this country and in the world. Nobody has the answers.’’
