The Braves are going to be without their leadoff hitter for a potential series-clinching Game 4 against the Brewers.
Heard from a source Jorge Soler is out for the Braves today vs the Brewers
Potentially COVID related. Would be a big blow to the Braves, been leading off! Potential series clinching game.
Lets see if the peoples source is back.

Braves outfielder Jorge Soler has tested positive for COVID-19. He’s no longer on Atlanta’s NLDS roster.

The Braves transaction wire shows that Cristian Pache has been recalled from Atlanta’s taxi squad. Guillermo Heredia will start and play center field today, batting 8th.
Obviously, we hope Soler isn’t experiencing any serious symptoms, and hopefully, he can return to the roster sooner rather than later. We also have to hope that this doesn’t turn into some sort of outbreak where the Braves will be missing multiple players for a substantial amount of time. We will keep you updated as more details are released, but first and foremost, the Braves must take care of business tonight.
