Ian Desmond announced on Instagram on Monday that he will not participate in MLB's planned 60-game season.

He is the fourth player to opt out, joining Ryan Zimmerman and Joe Ross of the Nationals and Mike Leake of the Diamondbacks. Desmond cited both the COVID-19 pandemic and racial issues inside and outside of baseball among his reasons for sitting this year. His wife is pregnant with the couple's fifth child. From a fantasy perspective, the absence of Desmond in Colorado could mean a better shot at an everyday role for sleeper Sam Hilliard. Garrett Hampson and Ryan McMahon also stand to benefit to some degree. Jun 29 10:14 pm (EST)
