Major League Baseball had already announced the cancellation of the Cardinals’ upcoming series with the Pirates, meaning they were stuck in the 5 matches they had just played. They have now missed 13 consecutive games, and it is still unclear when they will play. It is unclear how serious any of the Cardinals’ cases are, although baseball operations president John Mozeliak said some players went to the hospital, According to Jessie Rogers of ESPN.
The Cardinals now have 10 players and 7 staff members test positive, Bob Knightangle copy of USA Today. It is not believed that another positive test is going to come, although the organization has increased its efforts with connectivity and vigorous testing will continue. If there are no newly discovered positive tests going forward, it is predictable that the Cardinals may return to play this weekend. For that conversation to occur, however, the Cardinals would first seek consecutive days without a positive test, According to Rogers.
