FILE – In this March 4, 2020 file photo, New York Mets pitcher Marcus Stroman throws a pitch to the St. Louis Cardinals during the first inning of a spring training baseball game in Port St. Lucie, Fla. Stroman, David Price, Buster Posey, and more than a dozen other players who opted out of the pandemic-shortened 2020 season get back to work this week. They not only will have to deal with rust but the demands of MLB’s coronavirus safety protocols.
