Good morning. And to think, a week ago at this time, the major story in this here spot was about Willie Calhoun’s condition after being hit in the face by a fastball. Seems like a lifetime ago.

Now, a week later, the AP reported that the first baseball player — a Yankees minor leaguer — has tested positive for the coronavirus.

Jeff Wilson writes that with the start of the 2020 season up in the air, the Rangers have parted ways to wait things out at home per MLB’s request.

Evan Grant notes that the Rangers had hoped to promote unity by sticking together to train but, in this era of social distancing, it was decided that splitting up was the right thing to do.

Dave Sessions writes that Jon Daniels has acknowledged that the Rangers have closed camp for the time being with no real timetable for a return.

Tim Cowlishaw took this “opportunity” to report in from Vegas and write about how things are going at casinos for some reason.

And, lastly, to pass this lonely time without baseball, MLB dot com lists a classic game from each team that you can watch online.

Have a nice day!
