Nationals activate Trea Turner

1 Comment

The Washington Nationals got a boost today: they have activated Trea Turner from the injured list. He’ll bat leadoff and play short in tonight’s game against the Cubs.

Turner has been out since early April with a broken finger. He broke that finger while trying to bunt a day after hitting two homers in a game so here’s hoping he swings away, swings away.

Turner had only played four games when he went down but had started out hot. The season now begins for him anew. He’s sure to be an upgrade over Wilmer Difo and Carter Kieboom, neither of whom have hit a lick in Turner’s absence.

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.
