Eight More Marlins Players Test Positive for COVID-19

ESPN's Jeff Passan has reported that eight more Miami Marlins players and two coaches have tested positive for COVID-19 and their home opener scheduled for tonight has been canceled.  With the four cases earlier in the week, the Marlins now have at least 14 active cases.

The team remains in Philadelphia and will continue to undergo testing while there.  We will see how many games need to be canceled/postponed because of this and if any Philadelphia Phillies start testing positive.

I will update the site if any of the names of the positive tests are revealed.

UPDATE - The Phillies vs. Yankees game today has also been canceled.
