Snitker said Freeman, a four-time All-Star first baseman, is still battling a fever and it could be "a while" until he returns. Snitker said Smith and Toussaint, both relief pitchers, have been asymptomatic.

MLB protocol does not require identification of those players who test positive.  The Braves players opted to volunteer their diagnosis.

Under MLB protocol, all four players must self-isolate immediately and will need to test negative twice in a 24-hour period before returning to the field amid the coronavirus pandemic.

The 30-year-old Freeman batted .295 last season and set career highs with 38 homers and 121 RBIs. He had surgery in October to remove three loose bodies from his right elbow.

The Braves have the 6th shortest odds of winning the 2020 World Series with a payout potential of $2000 for every $100 bet.

All 30 teams began training camp Friday at their home ballparks. MLB and the players union on Friday announced that 31 players and seven staff members -- from 19 teams -- had tested positive for COVID-19 in the first round of league-wide coronavirus testing.
