A look at everything that is happening around the Majors on Friday.
The national team and the “Greats” are waiting at least on Saturday to start their season, as Washington is struggling with the COVID-19 outbreak. According to GM Mike Rizzo, three Nats players have tested positive, and the fourth is considered “probable positive”.
The opening on Thursday was postponed և not immediately agreed upon, although Friday had already been set as a day off that could accommodate a game that could be postponed if it rained, for example. Metz coach Luis Rojas said he hoped the teams would play on Saturday.
Rizzo did not identify any of the players involved. He announced the preliminary positive test on Wednesday, saying that it was the result of a test performed on Monday, when the national team was still in Florida. He said at the time that four other players were believed to be in close contact and quarantined. Now, two of those players tested positive on Wednesday, and another had an indisputable sample that is considered potentially positive.
Boston և Baltimore are trying to start 2021 again. The season at Fenway Park was postponed due to bad weather on Thursday. The clubs will make it the day off included in the schedule for that opportunity.
“One day, two days, three days. I really do not care if I am honest with you, “said Red Sox manager Alex Cora. “I know a lot of guys are excited, but I think it’s for the best. “Tomorrow will be a better day due to the weather.”
Nathan Eowaldi has yet to play against Baltimore’s John on Mini.

The world series champion “Los Angeles Dodgers” was struggling with the basics on the opening day. Cody Bellinger cleared the fence in Colorado for the third indentation with obvious humps, but was called out after applauding teammate Just Astin Turner. Turner thought midfielder Raimel Tapia had robbed Bellinger’s household, but the ball bounced off his glove.
Ruling NL Cy Young Award winner Trevor Bauer will make his debut at Dodger Blue against right-hander Antonio Senzatella.
Blake Snell is preparing for his first start in the game against Padres against Arizona. The 6th game of the World Series was Snell’s last official tour, when he made a 5 1/3 overrun before the shocking early catch of Rays manager Kevin Cash.
The Dodgers went on to win Game 6, finishing the Series, and now Snell is in the NL West, playing LA’s main rival after the off-season trade. The left will try to start with the right foot in the game against Merrill Kelly of Diamondbacks.
Major League Baseball returned fans to the palace on Thursday, but many who tried to watch from a distance found it difficult to adjust. Dozens of social media users complained about the disconnection of MLB.tv, the league-controlled streaming platform, which allows subscribers to watch games on their computers, phones and other devices. The MLB’s Twitter account confirmed that MLB.tv was shutting down and said it was “working on a resolution”. It seemed that the problem was solved for most of the subscribers by noon.
