Nationals star Juan Soto has tested positive for Covid-19. He will miss tonight’s game and obviously more than that one.
“We put Juan Soto on the COVID IL today,” Rizzo explained. “He’s asymptomatic, he’s following all major league protocol, and as you know, he’s been tested multiple times throughout the Spring Training in-take season and has tested negative on all those occasions.
“So we will proceed when he has two negative tests and we will hopefully get him back on the field. So, that’s the major news of the day for the Nats.”
It is good that he is asymptomatic.
He’s a important part of their team. He hit .282/.401/.548 with 34 home runs.
And, of course, he’s been in close contact with the other players on his team.
