Despite seeing the Marlins play in Philadelphia and testing 17 members of the Miami travel party positive, no Phillies players or staff have tested positive for coronovirus, sources told ESPN’s Jeff Passon.
A Philadelphia member who visited the club house personnel tested positive, however, sources told ESPN’s Marly Rivera.
Sources were quoted as saying that Tuesday’s game in Philadelphia between the New York Yankees and Phillies has been postponed.
It is the second consecutive matchup between clubs that has been postponed after 13 members of the Marlins’ traveling squad tested positive for coronavirus. On Tuesday, sources said another four marlin tested positive.
NBC Sports Philadelphia reported that Phillips would take all members of his travel party to Citizen Bank Park later on Tuesday and travel to New York on Wednesday.
The Yankees will leave for Philadelphia on Tuesday afternoon to return to New York, where they will practice at Yankee Stadium.
The Yankees were told Tuesday’s game was being ruled out with caution, sources told ESPN’s Carl Revch. The New York Post was first reported to suspend.
