On Monday, Jon Daniels told the media that three Texas Ranger minor league players have shown symptoms of the Coronavirus, or COVID-19, that has shut down the entire sports world.

“We have had a few minor league players, three in particular, who have exhibited symptoms, two of which have family connections to somebody that they knew who was positive,” General Manager Daniels told the media on a conference call on Monday (4/6).

The MLB season is not expected to begin anytime soon while the world continues to fight off the pandemic of the coronavirus. Many hope for a late summer start to the season, but it’s looking more and more likely that the 2020 baseball season will be canceled.

The players that have experienced the symptoms have been self-quarantined and are recovering from their symptoms.

Per Daniels, there have “some in the organization” who have been affected by the virus, causing the team to be precautious. There have not been any tests for COVID-19 given to the players, nor has there been any confirmed case of COVID-19 in the Ranger organization as of April 6th, 2020.

The names of the minor league players were not released by the Texas Rangers.
