Chris Sale suffered a mild case of pneumonia back in February that delayed the start of his spring training.
The Boston Red Sox left-hander is now wondering whether he had the.
"I don't think there's a test now, but I think they're working on a test now to see if you have antibodies for it, meaning you've had it," Sale said. "It's craziness to look at my symptoms and look at the symptoms of people who have the COVID-19 virus and some of the similarities. We may never know, but I'm definitely hoping not."
Sale tested negative for the flu, but the test for the coronavirus wasn't available at the time.
"If there is a way to find out, I would love to find out, but I don't know. I think that might be a stretch," he said. "As contagious as this virus is, I think that if I had it, somebody in my family and a lot of people at the park would have been infected by it. I don't want to make light of it and joke about having something like that, but it definitely crossed my mind and I asked people about it."
