TSC News editor Fred Richani discusses the Miami Marlins’ COVID-19 outbreak of over 14 positive players and staff, which forces the team to cancel its home opener vs. Baltimore Orioles per ESPN’s Jeff Passan. Plus: The Philadelphia Phillies reportedly quarantine, Marlins manager Don Mattingly’s controversial comments, and why MLB Commissioner Rob Manfred should be very worried about the league’s handling of coronavirus.
Note: The New York Yankees vs. Phillies game is postponed/cancelled. Maybe MLB really did need a Bubble like the NBA and NHL…
Statement from Marlins CEO Derek Jeter: “The health of our players and staff has been and will continue to be our primary focus as we navigate through these unchartered waters. After a successful Spring 2.0, we have now experienced challenges once we went on the road and left Miami. Postponing tonight’s home opener was the correct decision to ensure we take a collective pause and try to properly grasp the totality of this situation. We have conducted another round of testing for our players and staff, and our team will all remain in Philadelphia pending the results of those tests, which we expect later today. We will provide additional information as soon as it becomes available.”
