” I will be quarantined till I receive 2 negative test results, which I hope will arrive shortly.”
Puig says he’s sad about his diagnosis– “but I think that everything is in God’s timing which my go back to MLB will take place in His perfect plan and timing for me.”
” When I return to the field, I will do so knowing that I will have one less hurdle to conquer.”
