Struggling Nationals get back Schwarber, Bell, Harrison
WASHINGTON (AP) — Left fielder Kyle Schwarber, first baseman Josh Bell and infielder Josh Harrison have been reinstated from the injured list by the Washington Nationals. The moves make the team’s roster nearly whole again after a coronavirus outbreak sidelined nine players and postponed four games. That trio had been expected to be in Washington’s opening day lineup. But they were part of the group kept away from the rest of the club because of COVID-19 protocols. Major League Baseball wound up rescheduling the Nationals’ first four games of 2021. Four players tested positive for the illness, while five others were put under quarantine after contact tracing.
