Coronavirus found the way to another Yankees Minor Leaguer.
After the 17-year-old pitcher Denny Larrondo was the first professional baseball player to test positive for COVID-19 on Friday, another small leader in the organization tested positive. Joel Sherman from the post office confirmed.
The Yankees have quarantined their little leaders while following Ministry of Health instructions. After the first positive test, the team said that Larrondo, who was not identified at the time, had no contact with anyone who would have been in the Yankees main league complex in Tampa or at George M. Steinbrenner Field. The minor league complex was cleaned on Sunday and is closed until March 25th.
“We had no other corona[virus] Tests are needed at this point, ”said General Manager Brian Cashman on Sunday. “Like any other, will that likely stay? I would say no, it probably won’t stay. “
