Yasiel Puig has tested positive for COVID-19. As a result, he remains a free agent. He is asymptomatic and feels good. If he signs with a team, he will have to test negative twice before returning to the field, which could be when games are being played. (Jon Heyman on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact:

Puig was just about to sign with the Atlanta Braves, but unfortunate news has struck him and fantasy players. Given that he is feeling fine, expect him to sign a contract within 7-10 days. He was likely already shaking off some rust, and this just delays him further. He will tumble down draft boards for the time being.
