MINNEAPOLIS- Miguel Sano was the other Twins player to test positive for COVID-19 during the intake process that was recently done as the team reported for its summer camp. The Twins announced the news on Saturday.

Sano joined catcher Willians Astudillo, who tested positive but is asymptomatic. Astudillo will quarantine until he can pass two consecutive coronavirus tests. Sano also will be quarantined and have to pass multiple tests before he can rejoin his teammates.

The Twins have publicly announced four positive COVID-19 tests among the group of 60 players making up the current roster they are dealing with for the 2020 season. Minor league pitcher Edwar Colina and infielder Nick Gordon, who are not at Target Field with the team, previously tested positive.
