4 More Marlins Test Positive; Total at 17

Four more members of the Miami Marlins have tested positive for the coronavirus after the latest round of testing, sources familiar with the situation confirmed to ESPN.

The Marlins have now had 17 people test positive in the past five days. On Monday, the total of confirmed cases stood at 11 players and two coaches.

A majority of Washington National  players have voted against traveling to Miami for this weekend's three-game series against the Marlins, sources confirmed to ESPN. However, the decision on whether the games are played rests with Major League Baseball, not the Nationals.

News of the latest positive tests and the Nationals' vote was first reported by The Athletic.

The Marlins' outbreak continued to disrupt MLB's schedule Tuesday, the sixth day of the pandemic-delayed season, with the Marlins' home game against Baltimore postponed.

Monday's game between the Marlins and Orioles was also called off, as were the New York Yankees' games Monday and Tuesday at Philadelphia, where New York would have been in the same clubhouse Miami used over the weekend.

The Orioles, who made a trip to Miami without playing a game, are scheduled to host the Marlins in a two-game series starting Wednesday.
