Source: Another Marlins Player Tests Positive

Another Miami Marlins player has tested positive for coronavirus, bringing the total number in their traveling party to 18.

Major League Baseball had already postponed all of the Marlins' games through Sunday after the team's recent outbreak.

"It is most prudent to allow the Marlins time to focus on providing care for their players and planning their Baseball Operations for a resumption early next week," the league said in a statement.

The Marlins have remained in Philadelphia, where they played last weekend and have been undergoing daily testing. Sixteen players and two staffers have now tested positive.

No Phillies players or coaches have tested positive for the past two days, a source told ESPN, but a visiting clubhouse attendant did.

The postponements announced Tuesday were among a series of scheduling changes involving four other teams as a result of the fallout from the Marlins' positive tests. The Athletic was first to report this latest positive test.
