Yankees Quarantine All Minor Leaguers After Player Tests Positive for Coronavirus
The Coronavirus has now hit close to “home.” This Yankees minor leaguer is the first player associated with Major League Baseball to test positive for the virus. This player was placed on quarantine last Friday (March 13) when he announced that he was suffering from a fever.
As a result of this positive test, the Yankees have now placed their entire minor league system on quarantine for two weeks. The Yankees minor league complex will be closed until at least March 25.
For now, the Yankees Major League facility is open for the players although the Yankees are not having full team workouts and all drills and such are supposed to be staggered throughout the day.
