Manager Rick Renteria acknowledged that third baseman Yoan Moncada was not at Guaranteed Rate Field with other White Sox regulars Monday, the fourth day of summer camp. Moncada has not participated in any workouts, which began Friday, a source said.

The Sox announced Sunday that two players tested positive for the coronavirus but didn’t name them. Both areasymptomatic and in isolation in Chicago, the team said.

Renteria declined comment when asked about Moncada’s absence Monday.

“I’m just holding him out right now,” Renteria said.

Moncada, who lives in Miami in the offseason, was the only regular position player not on the field. Jose Abreu’s and Edwin Encarnacion’s first appearances were delayed until Sunday while the team awaited results of their intake tests.

Players who test positive can return to activities once they have recorded consecutive negative tests and passed appropriate COVID-19 protocols. In their statement Sunday, the Sox “we cannot comment on the health status of individual players or employees regarding COVID-19, and the players involved requested privacy at this time related to their health situations.”
