DUNEDIN, Fla. (AP) — Toronto Blue Jays outfielder Teoscar Hernández has tested positive for the coronavirus.

Blue Jays manager Charlie Montoyo announced the news before Tuesday night's game against the New York Yankees. The positive result was discovered during testing on Tuesday.

Hernández went on the injured list last Friday after he was exposed to someone with a positive coronavirus case outside of the team.

Montoyo said Hernández started experiencing symptoms on Monday night. He has been away from the team since last Thursday.

“He has been in isolation since Friday," Montoyo said. “He's going to have to stay out because of protocols for at least 10 days and that begins today."

Two other Toronto players missed time due to vaccination-related symptoms. A number of Blue Jays received shots last Thursday.

Left-hander Ryan Borucki had side effects, which included a fever and fatigue, and was sent home Friday. Left fielder Lourdes Gurriel Jr. left after two innings in Friday night’s game with symptoms including nausea.

Both rejoined the team within a couple days.
