At least two more Washington Nationals players test positive for COVID-19
While it’s opening day for most teams in Major League Baseball, the Washington Nationals don’t know when they’ll be able to start their season.
After having their season opener postponed due to one player testing positive for COVID-19 and four other team members quarantined for being in close contact, general manager Mike Rizzo announced Thursday afternoon that two additional players have tested positive – and another is “likely positive.”
As a result of the outbreak, Rizzo said he isn’t sure when the Nationals will be cleared to play their first game. As of now, he said everyone on the team is in “Mike Rizzo mandatedquarantine.”
The Nationals had a scheduled off day Friday in their series with the New York Mets, but it was reported that the teams wouldn’t open the season until Saturday at the earliest.
