More Cardinals have tested positive for COVID-19, according to multiple reports. The exact number is not yet known.
There are more positive COVID-19 tests today from the #STLCards in their preliminary testing but the exact number won’t be known until tonight. They remain quarantined in Milwaukee. Their next scheduled game is Tuesday in Detroit.— Bob Nightengale (@BNightengale) August 2, 2020
The Cardinals learned two players tested positive on Thursday, and on Friday their entire traveling party was tested using rapid COVID-19 tests and saliva samples. They learned Saturday a third player and one staff member tested positive.
Four tests (one player, three staff members) from Friday came back inconclusive, and St. Louis said they expected further word on those results on Sunday.
St. Louis' weekend series against the Brewers was postponed in wake of the positive tests.
The Cardinals' schedule will take them to Detroit for a series starting Tuesday, but when they actually play next depends on the scope of the outbreak. The Cubs and Cardinals are scheduled to play a three-game series in St. Louis this coming weekend.
#Cardinals awaiting confirmed results today on tests, clarity on inconclusive tests, and that will guide their next move. They plan to leave Milwaukee on Monday, play in Detroit on Tuesday. But results today will steer them, if virus spread is abated. https://t.co/E8uw7xwpcV— Derrick S. Goold (@dgoold) August 2, 2020
The Phillies and Marlins haven't played in a week due to Miami's outbreak — at least 21 Marlins (18 players) have tested positive in the past week. Philadelphia will return to play against the Yankees on Monday in New York, while the Marlins are set to play Tuesday in Baltimore.
