MLB Announces Justin Turner Removed From Game 6 Due To Positive COVID-19 Test

Turner tested positive Tuesday


Oct 28, 2020

Major League Baseball’s 2020 season was anything but normal.

And Tuesday night proved that.

The Los Angeles Dodgers claimed the 2020 World Series championship with a 3-1 win over the Tampa Bay Rays in Game 6.

But possibly the biggest story of the night came postgame when MLB announced Justin Turner was removed mid-game due to a positive COVID-19 test.

MLB almost went two months without a positive test.

ESPN’s Jeff Passan provided a few more details.

Passan also reported the Dodgers will receive a rapid PCR test and it is unclear when they will travel back to Los Angeles.
