The Korea Times - - SPORTS -

St. Louis Car­di­nals’ closer Kim Kwang-hyun has tested neg­a­tive for the novel coro­n­avirus as the Ma­jor League team has been suf­fer­ing an out­break, a source here said Tues­day.

Stay­ing in Mil­wau­kee with his team­mates, he is healthy and wait­ing for the re­sump­tion of games, ac­cord­ing to the source close to Kim.

The club has re­ported 13 pos­i­tive COVID-19 cases so far, in­clud­ing seven play­ers, since two in­fec­tions were first con­firmed on Fri­day (U.S. time).

The Car­di­nals are now quar­an­tin­ing in Mil­wau­kee and are re­ceiv­ing daily tests, MLB an­nounced.

With the Car­di­nals’ three-game week­end se­ries against the Mil­wau­kee Brew­ers post­poned, their sched­uled games against the Detroit Tigers, start­ing Tues­day, were also put on hold.

The left-han­der, who joined the Car­di­nals from the 2020 sea­son, made his MLB de­but against the Pitts­burgh Pi­rates at Busch Sta­dium in St. Louis on July 24, the Car­di­nals’ first game of the 60-game reg­u­lar sea­son. He earned a save in the team’s 5-4 vic­tory.
