The Philadelphia Phillies announced Tuesday that two more major leaguers and two more staff members have tested positive for COVID-19, according to Jayson Stark of The Athletic.

Three of the individuals were tested at the team's camp in Clearwater, Florida, while one of the players was tested elsewhere, Stark added.

The Phillies said 29 other tests came back negative, according to Matt Gelb of The Athletic. The team is reportedly testing players multiple times while doing contact tracing.

Philadelphia has now confirmed 12 positive tests for the disease caused by the coronavirus; test results for five players and three staff members at the team's training facility came back positive last week.

Major League Baseball reportedly closed all 30 spring training sites in Florida and Arizona for deep cleaning after multiple clubs confirmed positive COVID-19 tests.

Florida surpassed 100,000 total cases of the coronavirus Monday as the state reported nearly 3,000 new positive results, according to NBC Miami.
