BOSTON — The Red Sox received good news regarding an inconclusive coronavirus test Sunday in New York.
Third-base coach Carlos Febles tested negative in a follow-up earlier this week in Boston. Febles was immediately sent home following Sunday’s 9-7 defeat against the Yankees. Major league coaching staff member Ramon Vazquez was at third base for two games against the Rays.
The Red Sox are believed to have navigated through their first road trip of the season – seven games in nine days – without any further positive tests. The Marlins had 22 members of their traveling party test positive and the Cardinals received their 14th positive test result Friday, forcing a postponement of their weekend series with the Cubs.
“We put out an email to the guys about different cities where we go to and what their risk assessment is on different activities,” Red Sox manager Ron Roenicke said. “They know when they’re doing things if they’re following the protocols and they’re following the suggestions that we’re giving them.”
Left-handers Josh Taylor and Darwinzon Hernandez continue to work at the alternate site in Pawtucket after preseason positive tests for COVID-19. Bobby Dalbec was on the taxi squad to face Tampa Bay and pitcher Eduardo Rodriguez has been shut down for the season after contracting myocarditis during his recovery.
