The San Francisco Giants announced Tuesday they have suspended workouts while they await results of their latest COVID-19 tests.
This has become an issue across the league, as the Houston Astros, Washington Nationals, Oakland Athletics and St. Louis Cardinals were all forced to cancel workouts Monday because they did not receive their results in time, according to Stephanie Apstein of Sports Illustrated.
MLB announced 31 players and seven staff members tested positive for the coronavirus upon initial testing when all teams arrived to camp July 1, but Apstein noted 10 teams hadn't finished testing when that announcement was made. Nine clubs still had not completed testing by Sunday.
The league has issued protocols that include testing for all players every other day during summer camp, but several teams are behind.
Even when players have been tested, there have been issues with the lack of timely results.
"Major League Baseball needs to work quickly to resolve issues with their process and their lab," Nationals general manager Mike Rizzo said in a statement Monday, per Ken Rosenthal of The Athletic. "Otherwise, summer camp and the 2020 season are at risk."
