New York Yankees third-base coach Phil Nevin and first-base coach Reggie Willits have tested positive for the coronavirus, the team said Tuesday.
Nevin's status was announced before Tuesday night's road game against the Tampa Bay Rays. Willits' positive case and that of a staff member were confirmed after the Yankees' 3-1 win. Manager Aaron Boone also said the team is waiting for more results.
Two additional cases are considered inconclusive but are expected to be ruled as positives, a source told ESPN, which would bring to five the number of coaches and support staff members who are positive. ESPN earlier reported that there were five positive cases among the coaching staff.
