MILWAUKEE (AP) — Chicago Cubs manager David Ross said none of his players have tested positive for COVID-19 as infielder Matt Duffy joined three teammates on the virus-related injured list.

The Cubs already had placed relievers Brandon Workman, Jason Adam and Dan Winkler on the coronavirus-related injured list Monday.

Bullpen coach Chris Young and first base coach Craig Driver have tested positive.

Ross says the Cubs are erring on the side of caution if any players have COVID-19 symptoms.

MILWAUKEE (AP) — The Chicago Cubs are concerned about a possible COVID-19 outbreak after two coaches tested positive for the virus and three relievers were placed on the COVID-19-related injured list.

The team announced the positive test for bullpen coach Chris Young before its series opener at Milwaukee, with first base coach Craig Driver already away from the team following his positive test.

Relievers Brandon Workman, Jason Adam and Dan Winkler were placed on the COVID-19-related injured list.

There was no word on whether their designation was the result of a positive test or contact tracing.
