CLEVELAND, Ohio (WOIO) - The Cleveland Indians confirmed Friday the team has had isolated cases of players who have tested positive for coronavirus, team president Chris Antonetti said in a Zoom conference call with reporters.

“We’ve had a few isolated cases,” Antonetti said. “There have been a few from players who have been home, just at their home, at their houses spread throughout the country. A couple of cases in the Dominican and then a few cases in our Goodyear facility. The encouraging thing on that front is that all of those cases have been isolated and that there has not been any spread in our environment. And thankfully all of those individuals have either recovered or only showing mild symptoms.”

The team did not release the identity of the players who have tested positive for coronavirus.

The exact number of players who have tested positive is unknown at this time.
