Cleveland Indians center fielder Delino DeShields has tested positive for COVID-19. According to the club’s president Chris Antonetti, DeShields tested positive for the virus in Arizona. He currently remains in isolation at his home. DeShields will not be able to travel to Cleveland until he tests negative for the coronavirus.
Last week Antonetti confirmed there have been cases of coronavirus among the team. He said there were a few isolated COVID-19 cases within the Indians organization: some in players who have been home, a couple in the Dominican Republic and a couple at their facility in Goodyear. Antonetti emphasized they were isolated and there was no spread within the Indians environment.
