Corona Virus MLB Gamers: A listing of gamers who examined constructive for COVID-19 within the 2020 season

Editor’s Note: Sporting News has chosen to publish only positive COVID-19 tests that have been confirmed by the player, his manager, or his team.

Positive tests for COVID-19 are an unfortunate by-product of MLB that is forcing a season in the middle of a global pandemic, and if early returns are an indication of this, these tests will not slow down at the beginning of the season.

There have been a number of players who have opted out to this point to give the teams an idea of ​​what exactly they are up to against the 2020 season. However, the first test results were encouraging.

While MLB’s first two test rounds showed a positive rate of less than 2 percent for all MLB employees – players, coaches, employees and others – this number might not be sustainable once games and travel begin in a few weeks. So far, a number of MLB teams have faced positive coronavirus testing, and hopefully this is not an indication of the upcoming MLB season.

While not all players who have matched the names on the COVID 19 list are shown, players who have reported themselves or managers who have been given the OK to disclose names are listed below.
