The St. Louis Cardinals on Friday afternoon placed ace right-hander Adam Wainwright on the injured list.
In a tweet, the veteran starter said he tested positive for COVID-19 but has no symptoms.
“Just so everyone knows, I feel great. 100%, with zero symptoms,” Wainwright wrote. “Out of an abundance of caution and following MLB protocols I have to test negative twice before I can return. Which we’re hoping is very soon. Thanks for thinking about me!”
Wainwright, is scheduled to start Tuesday’s game against the Baltimore Orioles. He has a 3.18 ERA in six starts this season, and is chasing history alongside battery-mate Yadier Molina.
Also, lefty Steven Matz returned from the bereavement list Friday afternoon.
