Less than a week into Major League Baseball’s long-delayed season, its schedule was thrown into turmoil on Tuesday in response to the Miami Marlins’ continuing outbreak of positive coronavirus tests.

The Marlins now have 17 positive cases within their traveling party — including 15 players — and will not play again until Monday at the earliest. The Philadelphia Phillies, who hosted the Marlins for three games last weekend, will not play again until Friday.

The Marlins were scheduled to play four games against the Baltimore Orioles this week, and the Phillies were scheduled to play four against the Yankees. Instead, the Yankees will play the Orioles in Baltimore on Wednesday and Thursday. The Washington Nationals, who were scheduled to play in Miami this weekend, will instead be off.
