ANAHEIM >> The Angels now have at least one player in their clubhouse with first-hand experience of the coronavirus.Patrick Sandoval, who has been back in Angels camp for a few days after missing the start of workouts, said on Monday that he tested positive for the coronavirus back in June.The Angels have had nine players who have missed at least part of camp for undisclosed reasons. Sandoval, Jared Walsh and Matt Thaiss have now all returned.So far Sandoval is the only one to say that he had COVID-19. “It was a little scary at first,” he said. “Obviously the virus has killed many people. That’s sad and tragic, so that’s on your mind. I just took it day by day, and once symptoms started going away, I felt confident I would be able to get back to playing baseball.”It took more than two weeks for Sandoval to make it through all the layers of tests in order to rejoin the team. He was able to arrive in camp on Thursday, a week after the first workout. He threw a bullpen session on Sunday.“It went really well,” Sandoval of the bullpen session. “My body feels great, honestly. I feel like I’m in pretty good shape right now. So that’s a good sign.”Sandoval would have been a candidate for the back end of the Angels rotation, but the missed time likely drops him back a notch, so he is likely to start the season working out with the squad in Long Beach until the Angels need him.He also now serves the role as an example to his teammates about the impact of the coronavirus.“I think that they’ll see that a guy that had been ill is able to come back relatively quickly and get on with it and get back to his normal patterns very quickly,” Manager Joe Maddon said. “I think psychologically, that’s a good thing.”Sandoval said that he thinks the Angels so far have done a good job of following the health and safety protocols.“I feel like we’re on top of everything,” Sandoval said. “We have conversations all the time about staying away, being smart, wearing masks every time you go out. I’m pretty confident in what we’re doing. Can’t speak for other teams, but everyone here is taking seriously. Everyone wants to play. We don’t want to be the team that messes it up for the whole league.”WARNING SIGNThere continue to be signs around the majors of logistical issues with the testing. On Monday a few members of the Cubs, including Manager David Ross, were held out of the workout because they didn’t get their results.Maddon conceded Monday that there could be issues during the season that would make players unavailable.“To think that there’s not going to be another glitch at some point, I think that it’s improper to think that way, because some things are going to happen,” Maddon said. “We have to be nimble and flexible and move through it.”Related Articles Jose Suarez’s rocky start sinks Angels in loss to Astros Angels offense breaks out to split doubleheader with Astros Angels’ poor pitching spoils an Albert Pujols milestone ALSOMajor League Baseball may have umpires fly on team charters to minimize their exposure to commercial travel. Maddon said he’s aware of the possibility and has no issue with it. “Who knows? It might even make for a better relationship between umpires and players and managers, etc.,” he said. “This is a time when you can’t worry about the way we had done things like that in the past. If it gets the umpires there more safely, in that kind of controlled environment, it makes all the sense in the world. I know that there’s potential for a bad moment. I agree with that, too. But under the circumstances, I understand why they’re considering it.”…The Angels added right-hander Garrett Stallings to their 60-man player pool. Stallings was the Angels’ fifth-round pick last summer, but he did not pitch in the minors, so he is still looking to officially make his pro debut…Maddon said so far there have been no physical injuries that limited any players in camp…The Angels are moving their intrasquad games to nights starting on Wednesday. Angels’ Shohei Ohtani spending downtime working in outfield The team is prohibited from providing information about any player’s health unless it’s a baseball-related physical injury.Sandoval is now back to work and feeling “great,” he said, but not without enduring a few difficult days last month.A 23-year-old left-hander, Sandoval is a product of Mission Viejo High and still lives in Orange County. He was playing golf with a friend back in June and he believes that’s when he contracted the virus.“The first two or three days, I had really bad body aches in my back, unlike anything I’ve felt before,” he said. “It was pretty heavy for two days. Once that went away, it was me by myself in my house, sitting alone for however many days, not being able to do anything and missing life. That was rough too.”Sandoval said even though his symptoms passed quickly, it was still upsetting after he received the diagnosis on June 22.

The controversial no-call stems from the play in which officials missed Rams cornerback Nickell Robey-Coleman interfering with Saints wide receiver Tommylee Lewis in the final minutes of the meeting. Because of the blown call, the game went into overtime, where the Rams kicked a field goal to win, 26-23, and punch their ticket to Atlanta for Super Bowl 53. Related News Bengals’ receiving corps takes another hit with John Ross hamstring injury It’s been six months since the infamous no-call in the NFC championship game, but the Saints still aren’t over it.NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell and three officials from January’s matchup have been called for questioning under oath by a Louisiana judge after attorney Antonio LeMon filed a lawsuit over the game, The Associated Press reported Monday. Le’Veon Bell tweets ‘overdue’ apology to fantasy football owners Jerry Jones says Cowboys could win Super Bowl without rushing champion Ezekiel Elliott However, other suits over the botched call haven’t exactly been successful and a petition started by fans demanding the NFC championship game be replayed was laughable, so it’s unlikely this will go over any different.Expect the league to file appeals that could delay or cancel the questioning altogether to avoid admitting once again what has already been stated: that a human error was made. The report noted the two sides will convene in September and “pick a mutually agreeable date for depositions in New Orleans.” The suit is seeking $75,000 in damages, which will be donated to charity.
Ottawa Senators forward Vladislav Namestnikov left Wednesday’s game against the Montreal Canadiens with a lower-body injury after a body check from Cale Fleury sent him crashing into the boards.The hit caught Namestnikov, 26, off-balance as he and Fleury vied for control of the puck entering the Senators’ attacking zone during the first period. The Russian forward slammed awkwardly into the lowest portion of the boards and laid on the ice for several minutes before skating off with the help of the Senators’ trainer and teammate Mark Borowiecki. Fleury with a big hit on Namestnikov, Namestnikov leaves game.missing audio soz guys pic.twitter.com/AIgHmBUBE7— GoatWorldSports (@GoatWorldSport1) November 21, 2019 The play was blown dead quickly after the hit even though the Canadiens obtained possession of the puck and started an odd-man rush up the ice, which could have been part of the league’s reaction to Matt Calvert’s injury on Nov. 16. In that case, on-ice officials did not blow the play dead even as Calvert laid in distress on the ice because the Colorado Avalanche’s opponents controlled the puck. The league’s director of officiating, Stephen Walkom, told reporters Tuesday that on-ice officials may stop play at any point if it is obvious there is a serious injury.The Senators acquired Namestnikov from the Rangers this season in an October trade. The 2011 first-round pick (by way of Tampa Bay) has 12 points in 16 games so far in Ottawa.
