Chicago White Sox right-hander Dylan Cease was concerned he would contract the coronavirus following his return home to Georgia in April.

Cease said on the "White Sox Talk Podcast" that he was "very exposed" to the virus. He believes his brother's girlfriend, who was living with them, had COVID-19, as she was sick for three weeks.

"Every day I was waiting for it," Cease said.

He added: "I was reading that usually within the first seven days you'll know ... so every day I was telling myself, 'OK, it's less likely I'm going to get it, less likely, less likely.' And once she was in the clear and then it was a week later and I still wasn't sick, I was like, 'All right, I'm either immune to it or she didn't have it.' But we're pretty sure she had it."

The 24-year-old said he wondered whether he actually contracted COVID-19 during his return home and was simply asymptomatic, unknowingly infecting those he lived with.

"It could have been from me. We don't really know," he said. "I was traveling. I was just coming from Arizona. I was on a plane, at the airport. It could have been from me, but I didn't have any symptoms of anything."
