“Held off as long as I could. I thought I was tough enough to get through,” he captioned the shot. “This virus is no joke. #GetHealthy.”
In a separate Story, Meghan King‘s ex clarified that he’s not sure if he contracted COVID-19 or if he’s just “really sick.”
“No confirmation on the virus yet,” he wrote. “Just waiting to find out if I have been infected. P.S. I didn’t know the swab could go that far in someone’s nose.”
Prior to his surprising announcement, the four-time All-Star — who’s former flame was on The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills — had been largely MIA on social media. “It’s back!!! @cardinals first spring training game and I’m happy to be back working with,” he captioned his last post from February 22.
The Cardinals have since tweeted, offering their support to their former teammate. “Thinking of our friend, Jim Edmonds, and hoping he starts feeling better soon!” they said on March 28.
