According to Jesse Dougherty of the Washington Post, Soto received a lab-confirmed negative test result on Saturday. That test result was independent of MLB’s official protocol, but Soto has been tested twice by the league on Thursday and Friday. If both of those results come back negative, he could receive clearance to return.

Juan Soto has not been able to play for the Washington Nationals yet this season after he tested positive for the coronavirus, but the slugger was finally cleared to return on Wednesday.

Soto has tested negative for COVID-19 enough times for Major League Baseball to give him the green light, according to Bob Nightengale of USA Today.

Nuggets’ Michael Porter Jr. has theory on coronavirus ‘agenda’

  Nuggets’ Michael Porter Jr. has theory on coronavirus ‘agenda’ Porter also claimed he has never received a vaccine in his life. Murray noted that the University of Missouri, where Porter played college ball, requires all students to be up to date on certain immunizations. However, there are medical and religious waivers. Porter Jr. ended his response to the question with the following: "It is a serious thing. It's a real thing but this is being overblown." — Clevis Murray (@ClevisMurray) July 29, 2020 It’s possible Porter Jr. hasn’t been vaccinated. According to the University of Missouri website, students can apply for a medical or religious waiver.

Soto tested positive for the coronavirus on Opening Day, and he has had several negative tests since. He was reportedly frustrated with the league’s testing process, and there were some questions about whether his initial test could have been a false positive since he was asymptomatic and had multiple negative tests not long after testing positive.

Soto hit .282 with 34 home runs, 110 RBI and an OPS of .949 last year. The 21-year-old recently spoke about how difficult it was for him to get his swings in during the quarantine. The Nationals are off to a 1-4 start and have scored two or less runs in their four losses, so they could use Soto’s bat back in the middle of their lineup.

  MLB, MLBPA reportedly considering further rules changes for 2020 It appears that the recent run of COVID-19 infections within the Marlins organization has prompted further contemplation of rules changes. The MLB Players Association has reached out to its members to gauge their sentiment regarding a few potential tweaks, per Britt Ghiroli of The Athletic. © Eric Bolte-USA TODAY Sports The 30-man roster currently is in effect for first 2 weeks of the season.

One Phillies coach, one clubhouse staffer test positive for COVID-19 .
The plan had been for the Phillies to resume play on Saturday. Whether that is now in jeopardy isn’t known. The organization has already dealt with some infections earlier this year, but managed to avoid further spread within the club.This is worrisome news on several levels. First and foremost, it’s concerning to see two more individuals in the game carrying this disease. Hopefully they’ll both make a swift and full recovery.Beyond that, it’s obviously concerning to see that spread (presumably) occurred between the teams.
