White Sox first baseman and American League MVP Jose Abreu positive for coronavirus

The Chicago White Sox said yesterday, February 24th, that first baseman Jose Abreu, the reigning American League MVP, had tested positive for the coronavirus.

General manager Rick Hahn said Abreu is “completely asymptomatic” and that testing shows he has Covid-19 antibodies, with Abreu believing he had a mild case in January.

He will spend a few days away from the team, with manager Tony LaRussa saying he’ll likely join them by Monday.
