Red Sox prospect quarantined for coronavirus concerns




 

Boston Red Sox prospect Chih-Jung Liu, who was in Taiwan until last week, has been placed in quarantine in his Fort Myers, Florida hotel room as a precaution against the coronavirus.

Liu, 20, says he feels fine and has shown no symptoms. If that continues through the weekend, he'll be released. Liu is actually the second Red Sox player from Taiwan that the team has quarantined this spring, as infielder Tzu-Wei Lin was also quarantined earlier this month. A Red Sox spokesman told the Boston Globe that the team was doing this out of "an overabundance of caution."

Liu Was named MVP of the 2019 Asian Baseball Championship, after which he signed with Boston last fall. He'll be assigned to a minor league team after extended spring training.

Texas Rangers manager Chris Woodward was going to address his entire team before the start of MLB's unprecedented summer training camp, just like he did when spring training opened about 4 1/2 months ago. The Seattle Mariners have three assistant coaches who fall into the high-risk category for the coronavirus and will work remotely all season. At Fenway Park, weights and other exercise equipment were set up Thursday in the concourse under the seats that Red Sox fans won't be allowed to occupy when the season finally starts.
