The talented Dominican missed the first seven games of the season, reappeared on the roster on Tuesday but did not play and hopes to do so this Wednesday against the Mets.
Washington NationalsYou already know that you can count on one of your jewels for the continuity of the limited regular season of the MLB 2020: Juan Soto.
The 21-year-old Dominican recovered from COVID-19 that had sidelined him from the start of the campaign and reappeared on the roster during Tuesday’s game, although it was not used. That is why he hopes to do it this Wednesday, in a new clash against New York Mets, which comes from beating 5-3.
Dave Martínez, manager of the champion team of the last World Series, revealed that his manager had confessed to feeling “his legs a little heavy” and that his arm “hurt a little”. In this way, he seeks to have his player full when he jumps to the field in his turn with the bat.
Soto, who had 34 homers and 110 RBIs during the 2019 regular season, was able to participate in the preseason until he was diagnosed with coronavirus. That fact left him out of the opening day, July 23.
This Wednesday, the Nationals return to action in search of improving their mark of 4 wins and 4 losses and Soto will try to launch for the first time officially in 2020.
