Nationals' Soto to miss opener after positive COVID-19 test

  Nationals' Soto to miss opener after positive COVID-19 test The Washington Nationals will be without Juan Soto for Thursday's season opener against the New York Yankees after the star outfielder tested positive for COVID-19, general manager Mike Rizzo announced, according to MASN's Mark Zuckerman. Soto's results came back early Thursday morning after he underwent testing Tuesday. The 21-year-old is asymptomatic and no other players are unavailable for Thursday's game due to his condition, Rizzo explained. Soto won't be cleared to play until he tests negative twice over the span of 24 hours.

WASHINGTON -- Juan Soto was in a red top and back on the bench in the home dugout Saturday at Nationals Park. The Nationals gathered to play a simulated game Manager Davey Martinez said Soto was asymptomatic throughout his quarantine stay. It was the second quarantine period for Soto since

WASHINGTON — Left fielder Juan Soto was reinstated by the Washington Nationals from the COVID-19 injured list Tuesday after missing the team’s first seven games of the season.

Manager Dave Martinez did not put the slugger in Washington’s starting lineup against the New York Mets for the opener of a two-game series Tuesday night. Martinez did say Soto was available to pinch hit.

“I talked to him last night and he really felt like he probably could use another day or two. He said his legs felt a little heavy. His arm was a little sore,” Martinez said. “He tried to ramp it up. ... The last four days, he probably got about 20 at-bats. In that respect, he doesn’t feel that bad, but I want to make sure we keep him healthy. We just got him back. He missed a lot of time.”

Report: MLB, MLBPA adjusting approach to positive COVID-19 tests

  Report: MLB, MLBPA adjusting approach to positive COVID-19 tests Major League Baseball and the Major League Baseball Players Association are adjusting their approach to positive COVID-19 tests in certain cases, sources told The Athletic's Ken Rosenthal. Some players who repeatedly test positive might not require two negative tests in a 24-hour span to return to play if a panel of experts from the league and union clear them. Rosenthal used Philadelphia Phillies infielder Scott Kingery as an example of a player the panel might take a closer look at during future testing.

But nearly a third of those who contracted COVID -19 were not home isolating when checked on by officials, requiring tough new penalties, Victoria Therefore, in addition to civil interaction, we expect commenters to offer their opinions succinctly and thoughtfully, but not so repeatedly that others are

State like this, or else they might release a deadly bioengineered virus, create economic disaster, and start a horrific race war, fanned on by ALL THE MEDIA, with no one ever questioning the narrative, and even now the clown show of TV newscasters in masks in their basements, long after COVID has run.

Soto was sidelined on opening day, July 23, after testing positive for the coronavirus.

He only was allowed to return to workouts on Saturday, part of an unusual four-day break for the Nationals caused by the suspension of the Miami Marlins’ season after a team outbreak of COVID-19.

The Nationals also reinstated right-handed reliever Wander Suero from the IL before Tuesday’s game and optioned outfielder Andrew Stevenson to the club’s alternate training site. Only one corresponding move was necessary because the Nationals already had placed reliever Will Harris on the IL last week.

The 21-year-old Soto is a big part of Washington’s offence. He had 34 homers and 110 RBIs during the 2019 regular season before becoming a post-season star while helping the franchise win its first World Series championship.

Yanks don't let Nats toot own horn, beat 2019 champions 3-2

  Yanks don't let Nats toot own horn, beat 2019 champions 3-2 WASHINGTON — The Yankees did not let the Washington Nationals toot their own horn — the reigning World Series champs had an actual, honest-to-goodness trumpet in their dugout — because Gleyber Torres homered in the seventh inning and hit a go-ahead single in the eighth to rally New York to a 3-2 victory Sunday. On a sunny afternoon, with the temperature topping 90, the Yankees trailed 2-0 entering the seventh before the Nationals’ bullpen blew the lead. New York took two of three games in the season-opening series.

Reds place Joey Votto on IL reportedly for COVID -19 related symptoms. The #Reds today placed 1B Joey Votto on the injured list and reinstated from the 10-day injured list RHP Anthony DeSclafani Matt Davidson had a false positive that put him on the IL , but he tested negative in every test afterward.

The first reason why is that the first, smaller number — the number of deaths from Covid -19 — is impossible to underestimate. People are either alive or dead, and usually as soon as a person dies they will quickly find their way into the national statistics. But the larger number, the confirmed cases

During a 3-4 start to the truncated season, the Nationals are averaging 3.4 runs per game and their team OPS is just .704.

Clearly, Martinez wants Soto in the middle of the order. But he also wants to be cautious.

“I told him: ‘You’ve got to understand, too, we do have a DH now. So these days where you need a day off, we can plop you at DH.’ And he said, ‘Yeah, I forgot about that,’” Martinez said.

NOTES: World Series MVP Stephen Strasburg will throw a simulated game Wednesday. He has missed his first two starts of 2020 because of a nerve issue in his right hand and only recently began throwing off a mound. ... Martinez said Suero would be available out of the bullpen Tuesday but he could be eased into things, perhaps in lower-leverage situations at first.

Nats' Martinez: 'I'm scared' due to Marlins' outbreak

  Nats' Martinez: 'I'm scared' due to Marlins' outbreak Washington Nationals manager Davey Martinez isn't shy about his coronavirus-related worries. The outbreak that hit the Miami Marlins - and forced two postponements on Monday's slate - has only exacerbated his fears. "You know what? I’m going to be honest with you, I’m scared. I really am," Martinez said Monday, according to Byron Kerr of MASN Sports. "So I go from here, home, back here every day. That’s all I do. I wash my hands - I went from 47 times a day to probably 99 times a day. Wear my mask everywhere I go. There’s that concern.
