Barkley has since self-isolated as he awaits coronavirus test results. Before self-quarantining, Barkley may have unwittingly infected members of the Los Angeles Angels baseball team.
According to ESPN, Barkley went to the Angels’ training camp a few weeks ago, and there are fears that if he has the virus, he may have been contagious during that time.
Angels general manager Billy Eppler told ESPN on Friday the team was aware of Barkley’s situation, “It was March 2 and to this point none of our players or staff have reported any fever or symptoms associated with the virus,” Eppler said.
“We will await further instructions from the CDC and Major League Baseball.”
MLB postponed opening day as the nation comes to terms with the coronavirus health emergency. Nearly all sports leagues have also suspended or cancelled their seasons.
