Most of you might know by now… Freddie tested positive for Covid-19 last night. He has had body aches, headaches, chills and a high fever since Thursday. He is someone who literally never gets sick and this virus hit him like a ton of bricks. We’ve been really strict for the last 4 months. Haven’t gone to a grocery store, haven’t gone out to dinner once, haven’t seen our friends and only allowed family at our house and we still got it. So far, Charlie, Carol and I are ok. We appreciate all the messages and prayers, please keep them coming for healing and protection for the rest of our family. Please take this virus seriously, wear a mask when in public and wash you hands frequently.
The Braves first baseman tested negative for the virus on Tuesday.
The 30-year-old has spent his entire career with the Braves. He had a career-high 38 home runs and 121 RBIs last season, while batting .295/.389/.549 with a .938 OPS.
