“The Dodgers organization continues to work with us during this ongoing outbreak investigation,” Sienna Spencer-Markles said.
The development, first reported by USA Today, comes just 10 days after the Dodgers won the World Series. No additional details were available, and the Dodgers did not respond to CNN’s request for comment.
It’s unclear if Turner is one of the five positive cases; he is a free agent this offseason.
“Many teammates felt they had already been exposed to Mr. Turner and were prepared to tolerate the additional risk,” Manfred said.
Turner also apologized in a statement, saying he has spoken “with almost every teammate, coach, and staff member, and my intentions were never to make anyone uncomfortable or put anyone at further risk.”
