Arizona Diamondbacks pitcher Mike Leake is opting out of the 2020 MLB season.

Fantasy Impact

Leake was battling to be in the backend of the Diamondbacks’ rotation so his missing of the 2020 season means Merrill Kelly and Luke Weaver will likely be locking down the back of the rotation. While not the biggest name, Leake being the first could mean we’re about to see more players opting out of the 2020 season.
