Ron Roenicke Reveals Red Sox Players Have Tested Positive For COVID-19

The Red Sox did not enter MLB Summer Camp with a clean bill of health.

Boston manager Ron Roenicke on Friday announced multiple players recently tested positive for COVID-19, the disease caused by SARS-CoV-2. Roenicke revealed neither who tested positive nor how many players tested positive, citing HIPAA laws and Major League Baseball rules, respectively.

However, Roenicke did disclose that left-handed pitcher Eduardo Rodriguez did not report to camp Friday after recently being around someone who was sick. Rodriguez’s COVID-19 test results had not come in as of early Friday afternoon.
