Yankees minor leaguer tests positive for Coronavirus

Well, it really was a matter of time before news like this came down in Major League Baseball.

According to Jeff Passan of ESPN, a minor leaguer in the Yankees’ organization has tested positive for COVID-19 (Coronavirus). The player was quarantined on Friday after alerting team officials that he was running a fever.

Beat writer, Bryan Hoch, went on to say that the minor leaguer, who will remain anonymous due to HIPAA laws, had stayed on the minor league side of the Yankees’ spring training complex.

This is the first known case of Coronavirus in MLB, and it likely won’t be the last, as we’ve seen the disease spread easily throughout the United States and around the globe.

MLB had delayed the beginning of the regular season by two weeks, but with teams able to go home and the pandemic continuing to spread, we might not see baseball until May at the very earliest.
