WASHINGTON — The Nationals and Atlanta Braves will make up their game that was postponed Monday because of Washington's coronavirus outbreak as part of a doubleheader on Wednesday.

Major League Baseball announced the change Monday while Washington's players were working out at Nationals Park.

Four players on the Nationals have tested positive for COVID-19 and seven more have been placed under quarantine after contact tracing determined they potentially were exposed.

The 2019 World Series champions have yet to play a game this season. Their opening three-game series against the New York Mets was postponed entirely.
