The Braves have been without Tyler Flowers and Travis d’Arnaud since Opening Day after the two started to experience symptoms of the coronavirus. However, following multiple negative tests over the past few days, it’s assumed they only had some strain of the cold, but you can never be too cautious this season, just look at what happened to the Marlins. Both players are now feeling better and returned to camp to workout today.
Both #Braves catchers d'Arnaud and Flowers worked out and felt good today (they split them, had one in Atlanta and one in Gwinnett). Snitker said chance that one of them could even be ready to play Wednesday's home opener. Wouldn't say if one was ahead of other in recovery.

Snitker said it’s possible one of them could be ready for the Braves’ first home game tomorrow against the Tampa Bay Rays, who they happen to be playing today as well on the road. Alex Jackson will get the nod behind the plate tonight after William Contreras started the last two games, and hopefully, one of Flowers or d’Arnaud will feel well enough to play tomorrow.
