Cessa tested positive for COVID-19 and is illustrating mild symptoms, Bryan Hoch of MLB.com reports.

The 28-year-old is absent for the start of summer training as a result and is self-isolating at home. Cessa will need to be clear of symptoms and produce two negative test results before being cleared to join the team, leaving his status up in the air with less than three weeks until Opening Day. The right-hander is expected to work out of the bullpen for the Yankees once healthy.
