Dodger outfielder A.J. Pollock confirmed Friday he reported late to the team’s Summer Camp because he had tested positive for the coronavirus, but has since recovered.
Pollock told reporters he believes he contracted the virus about a month ago during one of his various trips to a hospital for the birth of his daughter. He said his wife and daughter have tested negative.
“It was a wild ride,” Pollock told reporters Friday.
Pollock said he initially developed a headache and body aches, but he attributed the symptoms to a lack of sleep after the air conditioning broke at his home in Arizona. He said he opted to get tested when his headache worsened.
“I had a couple more days of symptoms like body aches, a little congestion, loss of smell,” he said. “It was crazy. It was frightening.”
Dodger reliever Kenley Jansen confirmed Sunday that he had also tested positive for the virus but recovered.
The team is holding Summer Camp workouts in advance of the shortened 2020 season, which is set to begin next Thursday against the San Francisco Giants at Dodger Stadium.
