so she's saying the two other positives were before this week, those were likely Elias and Suero.

I got some clarification: This doesn’t mean players who were on the field yesterday. The mayor’s chief of staff says the other positive tests were before this week.

Yes
OTH, the players might be more likely to contract and spread the virus if there was no season, with all of the testing and many other precautions in place.
For example, Soto probably got it from activities outside baseball, so it would not have been detected so quickly.

If all players on both teams that are at the game have tested negative why are some wearing masks?

As Joaquin Andujar once said about baseball, covid infection can be summed up in one word, youneverknow

Washington #Nats star Juan Soto is getting increasingly frustrated, his teammates say. He has reportedly tested negative six times_three by MLB and three by the team_but has not had back-to-back negative tests, keeping him out of action.

so he's tested positive an equal number of times?

Yea, that quote is actually concerning. Thats probably a typing/editing error, but that would mean he had more than just 1 positive test the way it reads.

Apparently he has had conflicting results. His latest reported negatives were from instant tests. Caution is warranted because false negatives are more frequent than false positives and the instant tests are generally more inaccurate than lab tests.

And that makes no sense as noted in the comments there.

Davey Martinez says the Nationals have received the second required official negative test for Juan Soto. They are now waiting for MLB and D.C. to clear him to return.

Juan Soto has not had any positive tests since the original one on July 23, #Nats manager Davey Martinez says. Still, he has not been cleared by #MLB protocols to play. MLB's tests also reveal there has been no positive tests by any team besides the #Marlins since last Thursday.

This testing seems like a mess on all fronts.

I’m shocked! 

Rizzo was on the Junkies this morning defending the MLB test strategy. He clearly took to heart the counseling they gave him a few weeks ago!

Damn. I'm happy for any baseball over no baseball, but this will be such a sloppy season.

The district government won’t allow him to play.  And what is sad is it is almost a 100 Percent chance that his positive test was a false positive.
