Cubs starter Yu Darvish weighed in on potential health and safety concerns as MLB attempts to start its season amid the coronavirus pandemic.
各キャンプ施設では十数人が入れ替わりで距離もとって練習しているのにコロナ感染が広がっています。— ダルビッシュ有(Yu Darvish) (@faridyu) June 22, 2020
Forty MLB players and/or staff members have tested positive for the coronavirus in the past week, according to USA Today, prompting MLB to shut down all spring training facilities. If/when MLB returns, teams will host spring training at their home ballparks, with the Toronto Blue Jays being the exception.
In wake of those positive tests, MLB commissioner Rob Manfred expressed the league's willingness to modify its proposal for the 2020 season in an email with MLBPA executive director Tony Clark on Sunday.
