Phillies cancel activities after positive coronavirus tests

Citizens Bank Park

The Phillies and Yankees had their games this week at Citizens Bank Park postponed because of the Marlins' coronavirus

With at least 17 players and staff members of the Miami Marlins testing positive for the coronavirus, Major League Baseball is essentially trying to figure things out on the fly.

The Phillies haven't been in action since Monday's discovery of a coronavirus outbreak among the Miami Marlins, who played a season-opening series in Philadelphia last weekend.

Nine players on the 30-man roster, two taxi squad players and two staff members tested positive earlier. The Marlins proceeded to play anyway.

However, Mayor Carlos Gimenez of Miami-Dade County, said Tuesday that the Marlins should follow 14-day quarantine protocols before returning home, which would create another problem - can the Marlins plan home games as planned August 4-Aug. The Marlins are also reportedly signing catcher Wilkin Castillo, who was part of their Triple A team most of past year, and relief pitcher Pat Venditte, who was with the team in spring training. Or should the healthy Marlins just stay in Philly and play there?

Rosenthal said the team anticipated this player would test positive based on contact tracing.

Major League Baseball said that among more than 6,400 tests conducted since Friday, there were no new positives of on-field personnel from any of the other 29 teams.

MLB's health and safety protocols do not establish a threshold for how many positive tests would cause a team, or the season, to shut down. A majority of Nationals players voted against playing the Marlins earlier Tuesday, according to ESPN and multiple reports.

Marlins games are now postponed until Monday as the team deals with the outbreak. Seven more positive tests were reported Monday following the game.

"The Phillies have received the results of yesterday's testing". The realities of the virus still loom large, and we must operate with that in mind every day.

I, for one, what like to see the season continue for my own selfish reasons as someone who regularly watches sports. "Well, that's great for Rhys, but if the person who has it is not wearing a mask, Rhys' likelihood of getting it is still higher than if they both had masks". Postponed for the second consecutive day were the Marlins' home game against Baltimore, as well as the New York Yankees' game at Philadelphia, a person familiar with the decision told The Associated Press. "I understand why they did what they did".

"It might be that they have to go in a bubble", Fauci said, "but I think they're conscientious enough and want to protect their players and protect the personnel that they will do the right thing".

But the Marlins decided not to have players use the room "out of an abundance of caution". It would be another if they miss a week's worth of games.
