The Nats canceled today’s workout, citing the “health and safety of our players” as they await results of coronavirus testing from last Friday.
Nats president and general manager Mike Rizzo announced the decision and called on Major League Baseball to “work quickly to resolve issues with their process and their lab.”
Rizzo said that all Nationals players and staff were tested Friday, but they have not received the results yet. He also said that without timely test results, it is “not safe for us to continue with Summer Camp” and suggested that the upcoming 2020 season is “at risk.”
