Arizona Diamondbacks outfielder and ball magnet Tim Locastro tested positive for coronavirus, skipper Torey Lovullo said ahead of the team’s Wednesday matchup against the Cleveland Indians.
“He’s doing good. I got the information last night and I spoke to him this morning,” Lovullo said. “He’s in the protocol and feeling fine. He said he’s feeling no symptoms and sometimes that happens but obviously we’re going to follow this entire protocol throughout this entire process.”
“Assuming that it wasn’t a false positive … he’ll be down at least 10 days,” Lovullo added. “How he got it? He’s not sure. … You can’t be too careful, those were some of the messages that we relayed to our group today. We have responsibilities when we step away from the ballpark. … We can’t let our guard down.”
Despite the positive test, the manager has “minimal concern” that additional COVID-19 cases will pop up.
