Philadelphia Phillies Put Brakes On Home Games After Coronavirus Cases

Philadelphia Phillies Put Brakes On Home Games After Coronavirus Cases

The Miami Marlins' had one more positive COVID-19 test, a source confirmed Friday, bringing the team's total to 20 overall (18 players) among their almost 60-person traveling party that remains quarantined in Philadelphia.

The coronavirus forced another change in Major League Baseball's schedule, bringing the league's total to eight teams affected in the first nine days of the season. However, three Phillies staff members have now tested positive since the weekend, including a visitors' clubhouse attendant.

All activity at Citizens Bank Park was cancelled Thursday until further notice.

"There's a much better chance of being able to find places to replay games because teams are much closer to each other and there's not as much substantial travel to replay games", he said. Eventually, the Blue Jays are supposed to play home games at a minor league ballpark in Buffalo, but it isn't ready. The St. Louis Cardinals were the latest team impacted, with two positive tests announced Friday. Baseball also desires to keep players' time in stadiums at a minimum: The Chicago-Cleveland twinbill took 6 hours, 48 minutes to complete; it began at 3:41 p.m. ET and ended at 10:29 p.m. with the conclusion of Game 2.

"We're going to talk to the Nationals, see if we can work out here", Montoyo said.

But not even a week has gone into an MLB season that has already been delayed for four months; the league already has a COVID-19 crisis on its hands. "I don't put this in the nightmare category", he said. It really doesn't matter if Miami Marlins or Philadelphia Phillies games are erased from the schedule in terms of business integrity.

The Cardinals said in a statement they learned Thursday night about positive tests from samples collected Wednesday.

Major League Baseball also announced that it has conducted more than 6,400 tests since this past Friday, and there have been no new positive results for COVID-19 among on-field personnel from the other 29 teams besides the Marlins. The Marlins' future this resumed season remains uncertain. "And I think everyone feels that way". We built the protocols to allow us to continue to play.

However, another problem seems to loom over the Miami Marlins as Miami-Dade County Mayor Carlos Gimenez said that they need to finish the 14-day quarantine before they can return home.
