Astros minus 8 pitchers because of coronavirus protocols

WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. (AP) The Houston Astros are minus eight pitchers because of COVID-19 protocols, but general manager James Click said there were no plans to pause activity at the team's spring training camp.

Manager Dusty Baker said Friday that pitchers Cristian Javier, Pedro Baez, Francis Martes, Enoli Paredes and Hector Velazquez were out. On Thursday, Baker said pitchers Bryan Abreu, Ronel Blanco and Luis Garcia were sent away from the complex.

It was not known whether the eight pitchers had tested positive for the virus or had come in close contact with someone who had tested positive. There was no exact timetable for their return, but they must quarantine for at least a week under Major League Baseball's health and safety protocols.
