CelebNSports247.com reports that USA Today’s Bob Nightengale and MLB Network’s Jon Heyman reported the Oakland Athletics are ALL CLEAR after players’ tests come back negative.
Here is what we’ve learned:
Great news for the Oakland #Athletics, all of their players and staff tested negative for COVID-19 Sunday after one positive test Saturday

No more A’s positives detected since the initial one. So that’s a plus.

Oakland’s game Sunday in Houston against the Astros was postponed after someone in the traveling party registered a positive test. The A’s are self-isolating in Houston while they go through MLB’s health and safety protocols.
The team had a scheduled off-day Monday, before beginning a series in Seattle against the Mariners on Tuesday.
It’s not clear whether Oakland will be able to get through MLB’s process in time to start Tuesday’s series as scheduled, but this certainly would be a step in the right direction.
