Nats GM Mike Rizzo issued a statement to reporters that the organization has yet to receive the results of the tests from July 3rd. “We cannot have our players and staff work at risk. Therefore, we have cancelled our team workout scheduled for this morning. We will not sacrifice the health and safety of our players, staff and their families” Rizzo said. He also added that MLB needs to clean up their testing procedures or else the 2020 season will be at risk. This will be a story to follow in the coming days.
