Kansas City Royals catcher Salvador Perez became the latest MLB player to test positive for COVID-19, joining a growing list of names before the MLB season even begins.

Just a day after spring training 2.0 kicked off and MLB announced 31 players tested positive for the coronavirus, the Kansas City Royals revealed Perez is now one of the players with COVID-19.

MLB clubs are allowed to announced which players tested positive for the virus as long as the person agrees to it being revealed publicly. As is the case with Atlanta Braves star Freddie Freeman and three teammates, many players are allowing teams to reveal the diagnosis.
