MLB disputes Hunter Renfroe claim that it told Red Sox to stop COVID-19 testing

Sep 9, 2021

As the Red Sox tried desperately to keep a COVID-19 outbreak contained as best they could over the last few weeks, the MLB handed down a mystifying recommendation, according to outfielder Hunter Renfroe.

Renfroe said the league told the Red Sox to stop testing in the middle of their outbreak.

The MLB quickly denied Renfroe’s claims, telling The Boston Globe‘s Julian McWilliams on Thursday afternoon that the Red Sox outfielder “is completely wrong and inaccurate.”
