The White Sox announced today that two players have tested positive for COVID-19 (h/t to James Fegan of the Athletic). Fortunately, both players are currently asymptomatic. Per the announcement, they are in isolation in Chicago and are being monitored by team medical staff. As is their right, each player has chosen to remain anonymous.
Those positive tests took place during the intake process, meaning that those two players did not participate in any team activities during the beginning of camp.
The players will undergo follow-up testing in the coming days, the club announced. As per MLB’s COVID-19 protocols, neither will be allowed to return to action unless and until they are free of symptoms (as these two players currently are) and twice test negative for the virus, with the tests to be administered at least 24 hours apart.
