Yankees-Phillies Game Postponed After Marlins COVID-19 Outbreak at Citizens Bank Park

R.J. Anderson, reporting for CBS Sports:

The New York Yankees and Philadelphia Phillies will not play their Monday night game as scheduled, Major League Baseball announced. The game at Citizens Bank Park has been postponed. The game’s status came into question Monday morning, when the Miami Marlins were confirmed to have a COVID-19 outbreak on their roster.

The Marlins, who played the Phillies in Philadelphia over the weekend in Philadelphia, reportedly have had at least 14 individuals test positive since last week.

MLB teams have been playing for one weekend — one weekend — and already there’s an out of control outbreak on one team. I do not think this is going to work. The Marlins ought to be quarantined for 14 days, which puts the whole season in jeopardy.
