Slugger Derek Dietrich rejoins Reds after COVID-19

Cincinnati Reds slugger Derek Dietrich is back with the team after testing positive for the coronavirus.

"It changed my way of thinking," Dietrich said Wednesday. "It humbled me and motivated me. I have empathy for anyone dealing with this because it sucks. It really does.

"I didn't have symptoms but just knowing and thinking, 'Well, who was I around?' This isn't about you. A lot of people are dealing with this. It is real. It is very real.''
