Rays lefty Snell puts comments behind, gets back to work

ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. (AP) Tampa Bay Rays ace Blake Snell reported for work, after all.

The 27-year-old Snell made headlines in May when he said he opposed the idea of players taking further pay reductions to start the season during a pandemic - that it was not worth the health risk. But he said Friday it wasn't difficult to start playing again after the players' agreement with Major League Baseball included their full pro-rated salaries.

"I would say it wasn't tough when it came down to what the (union) agreed on," he said. "I like to follow through to what I say. So for that to be the case, definitely happy about that. ... With all the precautions MLB's taking, it makes it easy to play. Everyone here is just super on their toes about it, so I feel very comfortable about it."
