Major League Baseball has denied Hunter Renfroe's allegation that the league told the Boston Red Sox to stop testing for COVID-19 amid the outbreak spreading through its clubhouse.

"MLB basically told us to stop the testing and just treat the symptoms," Renfroe told WEEI's "Merloni and Fauria" show. "And we were like, 'No, we're going to figure out what's going on and keep trying to keep this thing under control.'"

Host Lou Merloni followed up, asking whether MLB had asked the Red Sox to stop testing.

"Yes," Renfroe said.

"And just so to try to play, move on and don't worry about it?" Merloni asked.

"Yes," Renfroe said.

Renfroe "is completely wrong and inaccurate," a league spokesperson told The Boston Globe.

The Red Sox refuted Renfroe's comments.
