And on Monday afternoon the final pitch of the day came from Trevor Bauer. That pitch came to new outfielder Nick Castellanos, and he did not miss it.As someone who works from home, and well, works covering baseball, it’s been a joy to set up a second screen and watch these practices while working on other things.

Here’s a question for everyone: Would you be interested in a “game thread” type post where we embed the live stream of a practice and all just chat about it? Perhaps on a Saturday or Sunday so it’s not conflicting with work? Just a thought, but let me know and if enough people are interested we’ll give it a shot.

“As far as I know there haven’t been any out of the ordinary delays that at least was a surprise to me based on my expectations,” said Cincinnati Reds manager David Bell on the COVID-19 testing for the Reds when asked about it on Monday. “So far nothing totally out of the ordinary on our end.”

That hasn’t been the case for everyone around the league, though. Some teams around Major League Baseball have run into some issues when it comes to getting back their testing results, or even being tested, in the early on with the return to team activities.

The Nationals aren’t the only team that was having issues. Multiple teams had testers not show up over the weekend. Major League Baseball failed to get many of the tests from Friday shipped out to the facility in Utah that does the analysis due to poor planning over a holiday weekend. That led to a statement being released by Major League Baseball explaining how they botched the whole thing.

Kris Bryant told the Cubs media during Monday’s press conference that he’s not feeling safe or comfortable because of the testing issues. “We’ve had guys here that showed up on Sunday and haven’t gotten tested again eight, seven days later. And then you don’t get the results for two days either, so that’s nine days without knowing.

I think if you really want this to succeed, we’re going to have to figure this out. I wanted to play this year because I felt that it would be safe and I would feel comfortable. But honestly I don’t really feel that way, which is why I’m trying to keep my distance from everybody and wear my mask, just so that we can get this thing going.”
