Los Angeles Dodgers pitcher David Price wasn't very liked during his time with the Boston Red Sox, for a multitude of reasons, but his latest gesture for the Dodgers' minor-league players is a class act.
The five-time All-Star is giving every Dodgers minor-leaguer $1,000 to help pay for expenses amid the coronavirus pandemic and canceled MiLB season, according to MLB writer Francys Romero.
Sources: David Price will pay out of his money $ 1,000 during the month of June to each minor league player in Dodgers system (40-man roster not included) according to multiple sources. Beautiful act if we count that Price hasn't played yet in MLB with @Dodgers. RESPECT.— Francys Romero (@FrancysRomero10) May 29, 2020
Major League Baseball agreed to pay all minor-leaguers a $400 per week stipend through the end of May, which isn't even close to enough money to help players support their families.
Price isn't the only MLB player to make a generous donation to his teammates amid the coronavirus outbreak. Rangers outfielder Shin-Soo Choo also donated $1,000 to every player in the Texas minor-league system in April.
The Dodgers acquired Price, along with right fielder Mookie Betts, in a blockbuster deal with Boston that sent Alex Verdugo, Jeter Downs and Connor Wong to Boston.
The 34-year-old Price has three years remaining on a seven-year, $217 million deal he signed with the Red Sox in 2015.
