Tanaka immediately fell on the mound and action stopped as trainers rushed to check on his. He stayed down for approximately five minutes before sitting up. He was helped to his feet and walked off the field with the assistance of two trainers.

There was no official update on Tanaka's condition.

In six seasons with the Yankees, Tanaka is 75-43 with a 3.75 ERA, 947 strikeouts and 200 walks.

More Covid-19 Positives Identified

Atlanta Braves players Freddie Freeman, Will Smith, Touki Toussaint and Pete Kozma have revealed they tested positive for Covid-19 with Freeman displaying symptoms that include a fever.

Four Minnesota Twins players tested positive.  They including third baseman Miguel Sano, catcher Willians Astudillo, shortstop Nick Gordon and right-handed reliever Edwar Colina.

Two Boston Red Sox pitchers were also announced as having tested positive for COVID-1 Saturday afternoon.

Red Sox left-handers Josh Taylor and Darwinzon Hernandez tested positive and were isolated from their teammates, according to manager Ron Roenicke.

Kansas City Royals catcher Salvador Perez announced his diagnosis on a call with reporters.

St. Louis Cardinals president of baseball operations John Mozeliak announced that left-handers Ricardo Sanchez and Genesis Cabrera had tested positive, with a few test results still pending.

Rangers left-hander Brett Martin, a diabetic, had also tested positive earlier in the week.  He had a fever and fatigue but was said to be improving.

MLB will not identify which players test positive for the coronavirus, citing privacy laws.  Players may choose to do so on their own accord.

Major League Baseball and the players' association announced Friday that 31 players and seven staff members had tested positive for COVID-19, a rate of 1.2%, far below that of the NBA and MLS.

Major League Baseball is slated to begin June 23 and will be played at team stadiums without fans for the foreseeable future.
