Over the past week, ESPN reported, there were 17 people on the team who passed the test. The delayed season began on Thursday.
CNN contacted Marlins and MLB to confirm and update the team’s status.
The team did not go back to Miami on Sunday after three game series in Philadelphia, but stayed the night for more testing.
Tuesday’s game between the New York Yankees and the Phillies has been postponed, the MLB spokesman said. No other details were provided. The evening game in Philadelphia was postponed due to great caution, ESPN reports.
Marlins’ home against Baltimore Oriole and Yankee’s game with Phyllis on Monday night were also postponed.
On Monday, MLB commissioner Rob Manfred – when asked if there was a point in the league or team to cause a waiver – said: “I think the team is losing the number of players that brought it completely uncompetitive, that would be an issue we have to deal with, and we need to think about changing whether it is closing part of the season, the whole season, depending on the circumstances. “
“The same goes for the left. You get to a certain point where it becomes a health threat, and we would definitely close it.”
Ahead of Marlins’ game on Sunday against Philly, Marlins learned that Jose Uren’s starting pitcher would not be available for the game.
On Tuesday, Marlins told CNN that the team had warned of “positive trials” in the league and “Phyllis” before Sunday’s game. According to the Marlins, Phyllis “agreed to play.”
According to many departments, including ESPN and The Philadelphia Inquirer, Urena tested positive for Covid-19.
“We have decided that we will continue to do this and we will continue to be responsible and just play the game as hard as we can,” Rojas said.
Marlins continued to win the game, 11-6.
Over the weekend, Florida became the state with the second largest official number of coronavirus cases, surpassing New York – the epicenter of the country at the beginning of the pandemic.
In short, the MLB season of 60 games is not spectator. It contains new rules, including a ban on spitting to prevent the virus from spreading.
Other sports leagues are recovering with teams in so-called “bubbles” to try to limit interaction with the outside world.
The WNBA ended its season on Saturday at the IMG Academy in Florida. The NBA plans to restart the season later this week in the wide world of the ESPN sports complex in Orlando, and the NHL plans to restart with double bubbles in Toronto and Edmonton. The NWSL Challenge Cup, in which Houston Dash won the title, ended in Utah on Sunday.
