At one point this summer, the Boston Red Sox had nearly a dozen players and coaches away from the team because of positive COVID-19 tests or contact tracing.

They want to make sure nothing like that happens if they make it to the postseason.

On Tuesday night in Baltimore, first base coach Tom Goodwin was replaced by quality control coach Ramon Vazquez because Goodwin isn’t vaccinated.

Under MLB’s new COVID-19 rules for the postseason, any coach or staff member who hasn’t gotten the vaccine will not be allowed on the field during the playoffs. So Vazquez will take over as first base coach for the rest of the season.

Goodwin also missed time last month when he was a close contact of bench coach Will Venable, who tested positive for the virus.
