Nationals place Roenis Elias on 10-day injured list

The Washington Nationals have placed pitcher Roenis Elias on the 10-day injured list.

What It Means:

It's unclear whether Elias has tested positive for the virus or was simply in proximity to someone who had, but either way, his availability to start the season is now questionable.

numberFire projected Elias for an ERA of 4.31 this season with 16 strikeouts, 6 walks, and 3 home runs allowed in 16.7 innings, but the pitcher is now in jeopardy of missing time in an already-shortened season.
