good question as to who's at first now...hmmmm maybe Marwin?

Probably Sano. We’re three weeks out from opening day.

Morbid question, but what would happen if a player on a long-term contract were to die (Covid-19 or otherwise)? Is the team still obligated to pay the unearned salary?

Triples are more fun than home runs; stolen bases are more fun than strikeouts; singles are more fun than walks.

I would expect there would be insurance in that case, wouldn't there?

Update your priors.

Just updated the article to add that Sano is presently feeling well and not experiencing any symptoms, thank goodness.

I'm thinking MLBPA is going to recommend no 2020 season. Lots of players testing positive and more deciding not to play, just a matter of time.....

 

Thought I saw 1.2% of players, coaches and staff tested were positive somewhere. (MLBTR, maybe)

Which is probably consistent with the infection rate of the country as a whole.

Isn't this a good thing for Sano and the Twins? He is asymptomatic and shouldn't have to worry about missing any of the season. I take this as a positive for him.

I am surprised by the responses in this thread. Assuming asymptomatic, this is an ok occurrence, happens before the start of the season, and will likely have immunity the rest of the season.If I were the baseball players I would be tempted assuming I had no one else at risk, to have gotten the virus back in june, and then quarantined myself for 2 weeks.Then there would be minimal risk to effect the season, the downside is if someone had severe complications.The team is going to be affected by someone contracting covid during the season, right now we have 3-4 players who we know will not.

If you eliminate uncertainties, sure, but as you alluded to, there's no guaranteeing a player who contracts the virus is not going to have complications. Additionally, at this time it appears antibodies only last for so long. It is possible to test positive, recover, then test positive a second time some point down the road.

was this an anti-body test or a positive test? There are pretty big differences and unfortunately plenty of states as well as the CDC have been conflating the results.

I don't believe players are being tested for antibodies at this time.

 

Keeping this to the context of baseball, MLB will continue to regularly test players who have previously tested positive. If they test positive a second time, they will have to go through the quarantine/two negative tests/approval process again prior to returning to work.

Viruses mutate. People can get the flu or common cold, several times in a season, even with a vaccine.

 

Unfortunately we still aren't sure yet if Covid is like Measles, or if Covid is like Flu, or somewhere in the middle.

Antibodies generally last at minimum 6-9 months, similar to flu vaccines.I sure hope the season is done by December.The bigger issue is if there are different strains caused by mutations.
