Orioles' Anthony Santander confirms COVID-19 diagnosis
Baltimore Orioles outfielder Anthony Santander announced Wednesday that he tested positive for COVID-19 earlier this month and had mild symptoms.
The diagnosis explains why Santander wasn't in camp for the first week and change. He's expected to be an everyday outfielder for the Orioles this season and is hoping to be ready by Opening Day. The 25-year-old slashed .261/.297/.476 with 20 home runs and 59 RBI in 405 plate appearances (93 games) last season.
numberFire's models expect Santander to record a .253 batting average and .747 OPS with 8 homers, 24 RBI, and 21 runs scored in 193 plate appearances this season.
