Members of the Boston Red Sox take batting practice at Yankee Stadium on July 15. The game was postponed due to positive Covid-19 tests within the Yankee organization.

(CNN)Six players on the New York Yankees have tested positive for Covid-19, general manager Brian Cashman told reporters Thursday, in the second instance this year of breakthrough cases occurring among some members of the baseball team.

"We have three positives, and we have three pending that we've had rapid tests on," Cashman said, saying the three positive rapid tests are being confirmed with additional lab work.
The players with confirmed positive tests are pitchers Jonathan Loaisiga, Nestor Cortes Jr. and Wandy Peralta, according to the team. The three unnamed players have results pending.
