Astros workout canceled after possible COVID-19 exposure

The Astros canceled Saturday’s workout at Minute Maid Park after a staff member was potentially exposed to COVID-19.

General manager James Click released a statement Saturday morning and called the club’s decision a “precautionary measure.”

“As part of MLB’s testing and reporting plan, we were alerted that a staff member was potentially exposed to a COVID-positive individual outside the organization. Out of an abundance of caution, we have canceled today’s workout. We are working closely with MLB and our team physicians to follow the established testing and cleaning protocols so that we can safely bring our players and staff back to the field as soon as possible,” Click said in the statement.
