No New York Yankees players are expected to miss Tuesday’s game versus the Tampa Bay Rays after a coach was reported to have a COVID-19 issue.

According to Marly Rivera of ESPN, five members of the New York Yankees coaching staff have tested positive for COVID-19.

No players are in danger of missing games, according to Joel Sherman of the New York Post.

Jon Heyman has contradicted Rivera’s early report, indicating that only one coach has tested positive (which appears to be third base coach Phil Nevin). Other coaches are staying away out of caution.

Brendan Kuty of later added that team catching coordinator Tanner Swanson was wearing a mask at Tropicana Field. The Yankees were juggling assignments as both their first and third base coaches were away from the team for the first game of the series in Tampa.

The Yankees had reportedly crossed MLB’s threshold for vaccinations as a club previously.
