On Monday, MLB announced (along with the NBA, NHL, and MLS) that "all team locker rooms and clubhouses will be open only to players and essential personnel until further notice" due to the spread of coronavirus.
As the Mets and Astros faced off Tuesday in West Palm Beach, Fla., a few Mets players addressed the growing concern.
"It seems like they have it under control the way that they would like right now, as far as major league goes for the season," said Brandon Nimmo. "I know the virus might not be under control the way everyone would like, but it seems that things are going to go on as normal. We're just going to try to limit the exposure of the players so we can play those games without any hindrance."
"It is what it is," added Robinson Cano. "If you get it, you get it, but you can't live with that in your mind every day, walking in, walking out. You just hope nobody gets it and just hope it goes away soon."
