Former 17-year veteran Jim Edmonds announced on an Instagram video that he tested positive for pneumonia on Saturday and is now waiting to receive results of his COVID-19 assessment.

The 49-year-old was hospitalized earlier on Saturday, but he's since been released and is back at home.

"Trying to rest up and get better," Edmonds said. "Just wanted to thank everyone for their wishes. My phone's been blowing up via text and on Instagram. … I'm home, I'm feeling pretty good and I'm doing the best I can to rest up."

The former four-time All-Star outfielder and eight-time Gold Glover also posted an Instagram story while he was in the hospital.

Edmonds, who's currently a FOX Sports Midwest broadcaster, hit 393 career home runs while playing for the St. Louis Cardinals, Los Angeles Angels, Chicago Cubs, San Diego Padres, Milwaukee Brewers, and Cincinnati Reds.

He's best remembered for making some of the most spectacular catches in MLB history.
