BOSTON (AP) A minor league player for the Boston Red Sox has tested positive for the coronavirus, prompting the team to close down its training complex in Fort Myers, Florida.
The Red Sox made the announcement Tuesday, a day after the positive diagnosis. The team didn't identify the player, but said he was doing well.
Earlier this month, the New York Yankees said two of its minor leaguers had the virus. Those were the first two players affiliated with a big league organization known to test positive.
