Red Sox prospect quarantined for coronavirus concerns

6 Comments

Boston Red Sox prospect Chih-Jung Liu, who was in Taiwan until last week, has been placed in quarantine in his Fort Myers, Florida hotel room as a precaution against the coronavirus.

Liu, 20, says he feels fine and has shown no symptoms. If that continues through the weekend, he’ll be released. Liu is actually the second Red Sox player from Taiwan that the team has quarantined this spring, as infielder Tzu-Wei Lin was also quarantined earlier this month. A Red Sox spokesman told the Boston Globe that the team was doing this out of “an overabundance of caution.”

Liu Was named MVP of the 2019 Asian Baseball Championship, after which he signed with Boston last fall. He’ll be assigned to a minor league team after extended spring training.

If you want to learn more about COVID-19 or think you might need to be tested, give the CDC’s site about the virus a read. Informing yourself is the most important step. Washing your hands and staying home, if possible, is the best way to protect yourself.
