If the richest New York Mets player ever Francisco Lindor—who inked a 1-year, 34.1 million dollar deal with the Mets late Wednesday night—was dying to play for the team that rewarded him so dearly, he will have to wait a few more days.
This after the game was postponed last night for what the MLB called COVID-19 issues.
That issue was one player on the Nats who tested positive. And the only thing that we positively know from a result like that, is that someone has a positive test but not necessarily COVID.
Regardless, the team quarantined four other players as well who came in contact with them. The MLB said that "out of abundance of caution" the game will also not be rescheduled for today, the buffer day built into the schedule for Opening Day postponements.
Nationals GM Mike Rizzo had said Wednesday that his club would be down five players and a staff member for Opening Day after a player tested positive for COVID-19.
The next game scheduled between the two teams is Saturday at 4:05 p.m. ET.
