Major League Baseball has announced multiple postponements of upcoming games out of an abundance of caution after multiple Miami Marlins tested positive for Covid-19. The MLB statement says Marlins’ personnel who have tested positive for coronavirus are currently in isolation and are receiving care.
Here's what was postponed, according to a statement from the MLB:
- All games on the Miami Marlins’ schedule through Sunday.
- The remainder of the home-and-home series between the Philadelphia Phillies and the New York Yankees set to take place on Wednesday and Thursday.
"As a result of these postponements, the Yankees will now play the Baltimore Orioles at Camden Yards on Wednesday and Thursday in order to create more scheduling flexibility later in the season. Additional rescheduling during the week of August 3rd will be announced later this week," the statement said.
The MLB said that out of more than 6,400 tests conducted since Friday, July 24, no other on-field personnel has tested positive from any of the other teams.
"The realities of the virus still loom large, and we must operate with that in mind every day. We are confident that Clubs and players will act appropriately, for themselves and for others, and the data provides reason to believe that the protocols can work effectively," the MLB said.
