MLB denies telling Red Sox to stop COVID testing following Hunter Renfroe’s comments

As the Red Sox tried desperately to keep a COVID-19 outbreak contained as best they could over the last few weeks, the MLB handed down a mystifying recommendation, according to outfielder Hunter Renfroe.

Renfroe, who appeared on WEEI’s Merloni and Fauria show Thursday following his heroic performance in Wednesday’s win over the Rays, said the league told the Red Sox to stop testing in the middle of their outbreak.

“The MLB basically told us to stop testing and just treat the symptoms,” Renfroe said. “And we’re like, ‘No, we’re going to figure out what’s going on and try to keep this thing under control.’”

The hosts called Renfroe’s attention back to his comments to confirm, which he did twice.

The MLB quickly denied Renfroe’s claims, telling The Boston Globe‘s Julian McWilliams on Thursday afternoon that the Red Sox outfielder “is completely wrong and inaccurate.”

Red Sox OF Hunter Renfroe delivers throw of the year to beat his old team

Hunter Renfroe was already having a career year. He added a career night on Wednesday.

The Boston Red Sox outfielder delivered the throw of the year — and possibly the decade — to seal a 2-1 win against his old team, the Tampa Bay Rays. There’s really nothing else to add until you see the throw.


From a step in front of the warning track in center all the way to third base in one hop. Poor Rays infielder Joey Wendle couldn’t have possible expected that to come after his fly ball got past center fielder Danny Santana.

That was not the extent of Renfroe’s contributions, as he was also the reason the Red Sox were ahead after crushing a two-run homer in the eighth inning.
