Coronavirus: MLB postpones Cardinals vs. Brewers game

Friday's day game between the Cardinals and Brewers in Milwaukee has been postponed.

The Brewers' home opener, originally set for Friday afternoon, against the Cardinals was postponed because an unknown number of Cardinals players tested positive for COVID-19, according to various reports including via The Athletic's Ken Rosenthal. "The Marlins' personnel who tested positive remain in isolation and are receiving care", Major League Baseball said in a statement.

Cardinals beat writer Derrick S. Goold corroborated the reports of the postponement as well, adding that St. Louis players are now self-isolating in their hotel rooms. The team quickly scrubbed three weekend games against the Toronto Blue Jays.

MLB Network Insider Jon Heyman was first to report the news Friday morning. Miami's situation has also led to schedule changes for the New York Yankees and Baltimore Orioles, meaning eight of baseball's 30 teams had their plans altered during the first nine days of the 67-day season. Sunday's matchup will be played as part of a doubleheader. It's also not good that the Cardinals were traveling from Minnesota where they'd just played the Twins, which means games involving the Twins are now a big question mark.

The Miami Marlins and Philadelphia Phillies haven't played since Sunday because of an outbreak among Marlins players and staff. Miami has had 19 positive cases of coronavirus infections.

On Thursday, the Phillies learned that one of their coaches and a staff member had tested positive.
