Dodgers Third Baseman Justin Turner Removed from World Series 6 during the eighth inning LA’s title win Tuesday night. After the game, Turner was reported to have tested positive for COVID-19. This was the MLP’s first positive test of the playoffs, and Turner was immediately removed from the game upon learning of the positive test result.
Turner came back endlessly in the second inning with a test from Monday, Jeff Basson of ESPN reports. After the lab completed one test on Tuesday, Turner told the MLA that he had tested positive and told the Dodgers that he should get out of the game immediately.
The Dodgers won the game 6, 3-1 and captured the series Tampa Bay Rays, 4-2. This is their first World Series title since 1988.
Turner tweeted after the game that he was asymptomatic and felt “better”.
After the tweet, the masked Turner returned to the field and celebrated with the teammates around the trophy. He was next to manager Dave Roberts for the team film with the trophy, and at one point he took off his mask.
None of the team’s players regretted it.
Report by Ken Rosenthal Turner was told after the game not to go on the field in particular.
60-game regular season, MLP had to postpone 43 games Due to positive COVID tests. Both teams – the Marlins and the Cardinals – had significant explosions in July and August, threatening their seasons. However, the league ended the 60-game season and used neutral bases in the postseason to restrict travel and exposure.
With the Turner news, Major League Baseball seems to have hit a serious bullet.
In theory, both teams could have played Game 7 as planned on Wednesday, but at least – in keeping with how they did things in the regular season – the Dodgers were their best players in the turner who would have been forced to play without anything. Throughout the day there would have been the issue of how often Turner was within six feet of the team players and opponents. MLP and Commissioner Rob Manfred will keep their hands fully on answering questions in case of any contact tracking.
Turner’s test is a way to conclude that this is a very different season in baseball history.
