MLB commissioner Rob Manfred said he’s “hopeful” for baseball to return this summer and shared details on the league’s testing protocols.

Manfred says players, coaches, and other MLB personnel will be tested multiple times per week, with temperature checks done daily.

Anyone who tests positive will be quarantined, but not necessarily for a full 14-day period.

Manfred also said he has “great confidence” that a revenue-sharing deal between owners and the Players Union will be reached.

The current plan is for MLB to begin play July 4th weekend in empty stadiums.

Will this whole thing blow over by the fall or will we have to wait until 2021 for a sports fix?
