Additionally seven staff members tested positive.

The 38 positives represent 1.2% of 3,185 samples collected for the first set of results. For comparison, the NBA on June 26 reported a 5.3% rate of positive tests (16 of 302) among players, while MLS announced a positive rate of 2.7% (18 of 668) among players two days later. 

Major League Baseball will not be naming players who test positive, however, they did confirm that 19 of 30 teams had positive results.  The MLB Teams also will not specifically announce a COVID-19 injured list placement for a player who is removed from the club after testing positive; it will just be a trip to the injured.

Cleveland Indians outfielder Delino DeShields Jr. was one player announced Friday as testing positive, though the test was taken prior to DeShields arrival in Cleveland according to team president Chris Antonetti.

Texas Rangers reliever Brett Martin, tested positive for the virus upon his arrival for the start of camp. Martin is a Type 1 diabetic, an underlying condition that is considered among the risks for more severe complications.

Martin only dealt with “mild symptoms,” according to club officials. The pitcher said he had flu-like symptoms that including some congestion and fatigue early in the week but felt fine by Friday.

“It sucks,” he said via text. “I feel perfectly fine now. Just congested. I felt like I had the flu, but the last two days I’ve felt completely normal. I’m just down that I’m missing baseball right now. I’d much rather be on the field. My chances of getting it again should be low, so hopefully I’ll be healthy for the rest of the year. I’m ready to focus on baseball and getting back with the team.”

Major League Baseball is set to begin July 23.
