Nick Markakis Potentially Exposed to COVID-19

Atlanta Braves outfielder Nick Markakis was placed the injured list after he was "potentially exposed to COVID-19." Markakis tested negative for the virus, but the Braves wanted to be cautious by placing him on the injured list. There is no minimum amount of time that he needs to be on the injured list, so he can be reactivated if his tests continue to be negative.

Nick Markakis originally opted out of the season due to his concerns with coronavirus, but shortly after the season started, he decided to rejoin the Braves. Since his return, he has been one of the Braves' hottest hitters batting .353 in 12 games played.

This post will be updated with more information if there is any change in status with Nick Markakis and his COVID-19 tests.
