Chirinos says this is because catching is the least socially distanced on the field. Joey Gallo and Brett Martin are now the only players not cleared to play due to COVID testing procedures. Isiah Kiner-Falefa got centered and “all Zen and shit” on the beaches of Hawaii and is now ready to be an everyday player. Even though Joey Gallo has provided privately administered negative COVID-19 tests,...

Tim Heitman-USA TODAY Sports Links! The good folks at The Athletic have put together a primer on our new divisional opponents, the weirdo NL West teams. They also polled their readers and found out (duh) that most of them blamed the owners for the recent labor conflict and they’re not very confident in Rob Manfred. Joey Gallo has now tested positive for COVID-19 twice and tested negative twice in a span of 10 days, raising questions about the rate of false positives in a regime that relies on accurate testing. A plethora of early season off days will give the Rangers an opportunity to...
