The Miami Marlins have canceled their home opener against the Baltimore Orioles due to a COVID-19 outbreak.
Updating the Miami Marlins’ outbreak: The total number of infected players is 11 of the 33 who have been traveling with the team and two coaches, sources tell ESPN.— Jeff Passan (@JeffPassan) July 27, 2020
The Marlins-Orioles and Yankees-Phillies games tonight have been postponed. For now, the rest may be played.
First and foremost, hope for a full and speedy recovery for everyone who has tested positive for COVID-19. This is a worst case scenario for baseball moving forward as who knows how long it will be before the Marlins will be healthy enough to play and if they’ve spread the disease to any other teams they’ve played so far this season. It’s going to be an interesting week for baseball I promise you that.
