MILWAUKEE — Milwaukee Brewers outfielder Andrew McCutchen has tested positive for COVID-19. McCutchen returned to the team hotel in Atlanta and was placed on the COVID-19 injured list.
The Brewers recalled infielder Mike Brosseau from Triple-A Nashville. It was not known if Brosseau would arrive in Atlanta before the start of Saturday night’s game against the Braves.
Brewers manager Craig Counsell says the 38-year-old McCutchen reported symptoms on Saturday.
It was not known if McCutchen will remain in the Atlanta hotel when the team leaves after Sunday’s game to begin a series in Cincinnati on Monday.
He is hitting .240 with two homers.
