Offside: Braves' Jorge Soler tests positive for COVID-19

Atlanta Braves right fielder Jorge Soler tested positive for COVID-19 before Game 4 of Tuesday’s National League Division Series against the Milwaukee Brewers, MLB announced.

Soler was scheduled to be the leadoff hitter as the Braves look to finish the best-of-five series.

The Braves made a series of adjustments to the batting order and outfield assignments, with Guillermo Heredia replacing Soler in the starting lineup and hitting eighth while playing center field.

Adam Duvall will play left field, while Joc Pederson will replace Soler at right fielder.

Dansby Swanson will be the leadoff hitter.

The Braves were allowed a roster substitution and outfielder Cristian Pache was added. Pache can remain on the active list until it is approved for Soler to be reinstated from the COVID-19-related injured list.
