Major League Baseball announced two games scheduled for Monday night were postponed because of COVID-19 concerns. The games between the Marlins and the Orioles at Marlins Park and the Phillies and the Yankees at Citizens Bank Park were postponed.
“The members of the Marlins’ traveling party are self-quarantining in place while awaiting the outcome of those results. Major League Baseball has been coordinating with the Major League Baseball Players Association; the Marlins; the Orioles; the Marlins’ weekend opponent, the Phillies; and Club medical staffs, and will continue to provide updates as appropriate,” Major League Basebal said in a statement
The Phillies-Yankees postponement is out of an abundance of caution, given the Marlins completed a series in Philadelphia over the weekend. The Yankees would have occupied the same clubhouse as the Marlins at the Phillies’ facility.
