Washington Nationals short-stop Trea Turner has been pulled mid-game on Tuesday after testing positive to COVID-19.
Turner had already hit an infield single and scored on a home run in Tuesday's game against the Philadelphia Phillies.
The 28-year-old went down the tunnel after touching down on home plate and did not re-appear to take to the field at the bottom of the first inning.
The Nationals later confirmed that Turner's premature removal was due to testing positive to COVID-19.
Turner, who has hit .320/.368/.519 in 95 games this season with 124 hits and 18 home runs, has been linked with a move away from Washington ahead of Friday's MLB Trade Deadline.
