the giants have a hot shot catching prospect in the minors who's been promoted to replace posey. who knows, 2020 might go down as the Year of Wally Pipp.

Britt Ghiroli is reporting that the Nats and Dodgers are at a disadvantage due to local laws that require 14 days of self quarantine for anyone coming into contact with someone who is Covid positive. So we could lose players for a quarter of the season even if they never test positive.

Ghiroli has become the top beat writer for getting info from the team beyond official press releases. But she's also become the top cheerleader for calling off the whole season. Take the good with the bad.

And now Wander Suero and Roenas Elias go on the IL, no reason given. This is starting to resemble a drum kit slowly falling down a long flight of stairs.

Elias and Suero going down is a significant blow, just when Rizzo had finally built a quality (and deep) bullpen. They had Doolittle, Hudson, Harris, Rainey, Guerra, Elias, Suero, maybe one more (probably Fedde or Voth, whichever one wasn't going to be in the rotation.) Now they hve to rely on pitchers like Kyle McGowin, Kyle Finnegan, James Bourque, Ryne Harper, adn the like. (Oh well, at least Aaron Barrett is likely getting a shot to complete his comeback.)

Did anyone notice that Soto, Robles, and Kendrick are projected to open the season on the injured list?

Here is the projected Opening Day roster, according to Roster Resource:

https://www.rosterresource.com/mlb-washington-nationals/

"Go-To" Starting Lineup vs RHP
1 SS 7 Trea Turner R
2 RF 2 Adam Eaton L
3 2B 14 Starlin Castro R
4 1B 9 Eric Thames L
5 DH 13 Asdrubal Cabrera S
6 3B 8 Carter Kieboom R
7 C 10 Yan Gomes R
8 LF 17 Andrew Stevenson L
9 CF 3 Michael Taylor R 29.
Bench ▼
C 28 Kurt Suzuki R
INF 1 Wilmer Difo S
INF 18 Jake Noll R
OF/INF 27 Emilio Bonifacio
OF 29 Yadiel Hernandez L
Starting Rotation ▼
SP1 SP 37 Stephen Strasburg
SP2 SP 31 Max Scherzer R
SP3 SP 46 Patrick Corbin L
SP4 SP 19 Anibal Sanchez

Bullpen ▼
CL RP 44 Daniel Hudson R
CL RP 63 Sean Doolittle L

SU7 RP 21 Tanner Rainey R
MID RP 48 Javy Guerra R
MID RP 32 Aaron Barrett R
MID RP 33 Ryne Harper R
MID RP 64 James Bourque R

INF 47 Howie Kendrick R
OF 16 Victor Robles R

Both Elias and Suero are on the IL retroactive to June 30, so they should be eligible to come off pretty much any time.

Hitting coach Kevin Long just got out of quarantine. That 14 day waiting period that DC is mandating for anyone exposed to a potential Covid carrier is ridiculous and can't be legal. How can the city prevent people from earning a living just because they might have been exposed. At most a week after exposure should be plenty of time if you have no symptoms, particularly if you test negative.

The Nats are providing the players with pre-made meals at home and on the road so they don't have to go out to eat. (More jobs created by the players returning.)

Ali Modami has opted out for the season, he's the batting practice pitcher, known for his tireless arm. Not a familiar name but probably a familiar face for most fans. I'm not sure how easy it is to replace a human pitching machine.

@JimBowdenGM
I asked an NL GM if a player who has opted out from the season if he could opt back in say in mid-september if team was in a post-season position. He said that issue has not been clarified yet by the league and union.


Wonder who the NL GM was that Bowden called? Interesting that Zimmerman and Ross could end up being eligible to rejoin the team the day before the playoff roster requirement.

excerpt this morning from mlbtraderumours --

there is a notable carve-out for those players that are deemed personally “high-risk” for coronavirus infection. Such players — who receive salary and service time even if they opt out — are permitted to submit a request to return. Per Jayson Stark, there’s some kind of process involving team physicians and a joint committee to determine whether to honor the request. (Precisely what steps are required and what factors are considered isn’t entirely clear.)

So, what of players not placed in the personal “high-risk” category? They’ve got to make an in-or-out choice, for the moment. But Stark notes that there has at least been some amount of chatter surrounding the idea of creating a path back to participation in 2020. Again, it’s not clear what that might entail — e.g., whether the player would need to demonstrate some change in circumstance to justify the change of heart.
