A large COVID-19 outbreak hit the Boston Red Sox clubhouse amid the team's final playoff push, and one player was understandably upset after 12 players and two staffers tested positive for the virus.
In an interview with The Boston Globe's Alex Speier, reliever Adam Ottavino shared how uncomfortable he was being around the team during the start of the outbreak.
"We had a player that was taken out of our team and he didn't have COVID; it was just because he was deemed a close contact and unvaccinated," Ottavino said. "I got pretty annoyed with that fact — not necessarily individually to the point of having a problem with anybody. I love all my teammates. But I just felt like that's a certain part of the protocol that, like, maybe guys didn't take seriously enough in their decision-making process [about whether to vaccinate].
