The Coronavirus has already done significant damage to the world and has led to a delay in MLB’s season. Despite the stoppage, New York MetsMarcus Stroman is going to keep himself ready for the day baseball opens up their doors again.

Stroman is the epitome of what “no days off” is all about. The local-born hurler is known for his intense and high-quality training sessions. His exercises are precisely why he is one of the most athletic pitchers in all of baseball. Much like Stroman, Noah Syndergaard is continuing to work out in hopes the season starts sooner rather than later.

No Baseball Anytime Soon

The CDC recommends eight weeks of abstaining from crowds of more than 50 people. This sets the MLB season to resume way past the aim of April 9. It pushes back the hopeful date a month later to May 9. The longer we go without any games or Spring Training, the more time players will need to get themselves back in game shape.

Unfortunately, all players can do is stay away from people and countdown the days until baseball can resume. Players should continue to keep themselves healthy but do not expect to see them back on the field anytime soon.
