CLEVELAND — Astros manager Dusty Baker is experiencing “mild symptoms” of COVID-19 after he tested positive for that virus on Friday, Astros bench coach Joe Espada stated on Saturday.&nbsp

Baker received his positive test results hrs before the beginning of Friday night’s Astros-Guardians game at Progressive Field. He or she must wait ten days in the initial positive test to go back to they, or can return sooner if he’s no fever, improving signs and symptoms and tests negative two times a minimum of 24 hrs apart.&nbsp

Espada, who’s handling the club in Baker’s absence, stated he spoke on Saturday with Baker, who’s holed in a Cleveland accommodation.&nbsp

“He states that being within the room is driving him crazy, when it had not been for music he’d not understand how he’d allow it to be,” Espada stated. “But he’s in good spirits. He’s succeeding.”&nbsp

By Saturday mid-day, no Astros players or any other people of Houston’s coaching staff had tested positive.
