Texas Rangers television analyst C.J. Nitkowski tested positive for COVID-19 on Thursday.

The club says Nitkowski has "had no access to Tier 1 and 2 restricted areas or any other locations at Globe Life Field," meaning he has not been around players.

The broadcast level at Globe Life Field will be disinfected Thursday and everyone who had direct contact with Nitkowski will undergo testing, and is not allowed back into the ballpark without first testing negative, as per Major League Baseball protocols.

Nitkowski, 47, played 10 years in the big leagues as a left-handed reliever prior to beginning his broadcasting career.
