A day ahead of the Seattle's first MLS Cup playoff game, the Sounders announce a player has tested positive for the Coronavirus.

The club did not name the player and said he's not showing any symptoms while being quarantined from the team.

The Sounders have tested the rest of the team and technical staff and they've returned multiple negative results. 

The team said this positive result is not related to the case from November 13 when a staff member of the first team tested positive.  The Sounders say they have tested personnel daily since then.

Raul Ruidiaz also came down with a case of COVID-19 while on national team duties in mid-October. 

For now, it appears Tuesday's playoff match with LAFC will go on.
