Marlins-Orioles, Yankees-Phillies Games Postponed as MLB Attempts to Contain Coronavirus Outbreak

Major League Baseball has decided to cancel tonight’s Phillies-Yankees and Marlins-Orioles games, as the league tries to minimize the damage of a possible coronavirus outbreak.

On Monday, ESPN’s Jeff Passan reported that eight players and two coaches on the Miami Marlins had tested positive for the coronavirus. Those new positive cases are in addition to the four positive cases the Marlins already knew they had. Given that the Marlins played the Phillies on Sunday and could have infected players on that roster as well, MLB has decided to cancel tonight’s game against the Yankees.
