Marlins’ COVID-19 outbreak postpones at least two games

Marlins COVID-19 outbreak

The Miami Marlins have become the first team to experience a significant outbreak of COVID-19. Apparently, 14 members of the team (players and coaches included) have tested positive for the coronavirus.

This means that not only do the Marlins have to postpone their home opener against the Orioles, but the Philadelphia Phillies must postpone their matchup against the Yankees. The Marlins played the Phillies in their opening series, possibly exposing some of them to the virus.

ESPN’s Jeff Passan reported the news via Twitter on Monday.

It is unclear how the MLB will go forward after the multitude of positive test results. The Marlins will have to quarantine in Philadelphia for at least two weeks and the Phillies will have to get tested before they can resume play.

Considering only 30 players are allowed on MLB rosters currently, the number of positive tests is not insignificant. This could de-rail the Marlins’ season going forward if two weeks are lost to quarantine, and the NL East could be in even more trouble if any Phillies test positive.

TGH will keep an eye on the story as it develops. Check back for updates.
