MLB: Arizona Diamondbacks at Texas Rangers Jerome Miron-USA TODAY Sports

So the question “what kind of clownshow will we be witness to if there’s an outbreak in a clubhouse” is being answered presently.

Given recent research that indicates cardiac abnormalities may be present in 75% of recovered COVID patients, would you risk a multimillion dollar career on 2020 if you were a professional athlete?

David Price wasn’t the only one asking that kind of question, as Red Sox pitcher Eduardo Rodriguez is dealing with myocarditis (possibility as fallout from his bout with COVID).

The Rangers have met to discuss the team’s road safety protocols and Chris Woodward has indicated there will be serious repercussions for violators.

While the Marlins were on the road when the outbreak was detected, the disease has a 2-5 incubation period and the league has not released the results of any contact tracing.

Brett Martin has been activated from the COVID-19 IL and will be replacing Kolby Allard in the bullpen.

Leody Taveras has been optioned to make room for right handed hitter Adolis Garcia after the Ranger lefties and switch hitters went 1 for 10 against lefthanded pitchers to open the season.

Really, the offense as a whole is not exactly setting the world on fire.

And changing the lineup didn’t appear to be the answer.

Although Isiah Kiner-Falefa’s throwing error in the first, leading to three unearned runs, obviously didn’t help much either.
