The Phillies announced Tuesday that one additional player and two additional staff members at their Clearwater, Florida training facility have tested positive for COVID-19. One player who is not at the Clearwater complex also tested positive.

This comes on the heels of five Phillies players and three staff members testing positive late last week. The team tested 32 additional people after the initial outbreak, leading to today’s announcement.

Just in case all of this talk about 60-game seasons and schedules and everything has you thinking everything about the 2020 baseball season is sorted.
