Juan Soto (COVID-19) reportedly shelved for Nationals on Opening Night
The Washington Nationals placed outfielder Juan Soto on the 10-day injured list with COVID-19, reports Jeff Passan of ESPN.
This report comes just hours before the Nationals are scheduled to host the New York Yankees in the first game of MLB's abbreviated 2020 season. Soto was a late arrival to summer camp after coming in contact with someone who had tested positive for coronavirus. He's currently said to be asymptomatic. Michael Taylor and Andrew Stevenson should see more playing time while Soto is sidelined.
Per FanDuel Sportsbook, the Nationals are +140 underdogs against the Yankees on Thursday night. The game has an over/under of 7.5 runs.
