Certainly, a shortened MLB season caused by the COVID-19 pandemic could have a positive impact on some players, especially veterans who play on teams that have made deep playoff runs in recent years. Those veterans on contending teams are in the minority, though.

There are a slew of players that will miss out on a chance to put up a full year of statistics in 2020, which could ultimately keep them from reaching a career milestone and hurt their legacy. Others bet on themselves to have bounce-back seasons in 2020, which becomes harder to do without a full slate of games.

With that in mind, here are the five MLB players with the most to lose in a shortened season:
