The Latest on the effects of the coronavirus outbreak on sports around the world:


Arizona manager Torey Lovullo says that relief pitchers Silvino Bracho and Junior Guerra have both tested positive for COVID-19.

The Diamondbacks had previously revealed that three players on the 40-man roster had tested positive but Sunday was the first time any were identified.

Lovullo said both players are doing well.

“The two guys I mentioned are asymptomatic and feel great,” Lovullo said. “They’re in the protocol, doing what they can and taking care of what they can at home and healing up.”


The Milwaukee Bucks have closed their practice facility following the team’s Friday round of testing for the coronavirus.
