Yankees catcher Gary Sanchez is not at George M. Steinbrenner field in Tampa on Tuesday because of a fever.
Sanchez tested positive for the flu, according to manager Aaron Boone, though he wasn’t tested for coronavirus.
The 27-year-old has also been dealing with a back issue in recent days.
Yankees reliever Zack Britton recently expressed concern about coronavirus after someone in Hillsborough County was diagnosed with the virus.
“The worst thing that could happen is somebody in here gets sick because of the close contact we have with each other,” Britton said
Because of coronavirus, today was the first day MLB implemented media restrictions on clubhouse access.
