The San Francisco Giants announced two more members of their organization tested positive for COVID-19.
The team didn’t specify whether the positive tests came from the active roster or front office/coaching staff.
Right-hander Luis Madero and outfielder Hunter Bishop were the first two players from the Giants to test positive.
MLB acknowledged some teams experienced delays in getting the results of COVID-19 tests back over the weekend, which impacted their ability to work out on Monday.
Giants president of baseball operations Farhan Zaidi said the team wasn’t among those impacted by the issue.
“Everybody out on the field for us, all those players, have completed intake screening,” he said, per the San Francisco Chronicle‘s Henry Schulman. “We had everybody report before Friday. It sounds like from what I’ve read that some of the tests from Friday, which were intake tests for some teams, have not come back yet.”
MLB announced Friday it had registered 3,185 total tests as part of its mandatory intake screening. Thirty-one players and seven team employees had tested positive from the group.
ESPN’s Marly Rivera noted teams are prohibited from publicly identifying any players who contracted the coronavirus. Rivera shared a comment from New York Yankees general manager Brian Cashman, who said reporters “will be left to try to figure that out.”
While the Texas Rangers confirmed that 2019 All-Star Joey Gallo had tested positive, MLB.com’s T.R. Sullivan wrote they only did so after receiving permission from Gallo.
