Nationals third baseman Anthony Rendon has been diagnosed with a sprained MCL in his left knee, but for now at least the team insists it’s a minor injury that will only sideline him for a few days.

Of course, already this spring we’ve seen plenty of “minor” injuries across baseball quickly prove to be very serious and the Nationals have a lot of banged up position players right now led by Denard Span and his 4-6 recovery timetable for core muscle surgery.

Rendon was one of the best all-around players in the league last season as a 24-year-old in his first full MLB campaign, hitting .287 with 21 homers and an .824 OPS while taking over for Ryan Zimmerman as the starting third baseman.

He was injured on a diving play during Monday’s game.

Longtime Angels and Cardinals outfielder Jim Edmonds shared on his Instagram story that he is being tested for coronavirus.

The four-time All-Star, who now works as a broadcaster for Fox Sports Midwest, has not posted an update on the results of his test.

If you want to learn more about COVID-19 or think you might need to be tested, give the CDC’s site about the virus a read. Informing yourself is the most important step. Washing your hands and staying home, if possible, is the best way to protect yourself.
