The name of the player has not yet been released.
The Reds were supposed to play them again Saturday, however that game, as well as Sunday’s game, has been postponed to allow for additional testing and to complete the contact tracing process.
The reported positive case comes just one day before the St. Louis Cardinals, who have not played since July 29 because of coronavirus cases, return to the field. They will face off against rival Chicago Cubs Saturday.
Additionally, prior to the Cardinals’ positive cases, eighteen Miami Marlins players and two coaches tested positive for COVID-19.
