Rizzo latest Yankee to test positive for COVID


New York Yankees first baseman Anthony Rizzo has tested positive for COVID-19, manager Aaron Boone announced Sunday.

Boone said Rizzo, who turned 32 on Sunday, is experiencing some symptoms and will be placed on the COVID-related injured list.

Rizzo joins catcher Gary Sanchez and starting pitchers Gerrit Cole and Jordan Montgomery as Yankees players to recently test positive for the virus.

Rizzo, acquired by the Yankees from the Chicago Cubs before the trade deadline, is hitting .281 with three home runs and six RBIs in nine games since joining New York.

Rizzo, a cancer survivor, said in June while with the Cubs that he wanted to see more “data” before deciding whether to get vaccinated against COVID-19.
