An outbreak of chickenpox sounds like something more likely to affect a T-ball team than a major league club.
But two key players on the Kansas City Royals have been diagnosed with the illness, and trainers are scrambling to find out who else could be at risk.
The team has quarantined All-Star relief pitcher Kelvin Herrera and outfielder Alex Rios. Both of those players showed symptoms while the Royals were on the road, and each was sent back to KC on a private jet.
