Lance McCullers Reveals Group of Astros Players Will Stay at Spring Training and Workout Amid MLB Suspension

Lance McCullers Jr.

When the coronavirus pandemic started to spread across the United States, Major League Baseball followed most other American sports leagues and announced they would be suspending operations in an effort to combat this virus.
While the league gave players the go ahead to leave their team's Spring Training complex and return home, Houston Astros starter Lance McCullers confirmed the team will continue to work out together amid this public health crisis.

 McCullers said a contingent of MLB players will stay in West Palm Beach, while another group of players on the big league roster will head back to Texas to work out at Minute Maid Park.

This is almost the exact same strategy that the New York Yankees adopted, as the Bronx Bombers voted on staying in Tampa and working out while their league had ground to a halt.

The MLB season has technically only been moved back two weeks, but it will almost certainly be pushed back further. Rather than head back home and wait for this to blow over, the Astros will try to remain as sharp as possible as they prepare for the inevitable return of the nation's pastime.
