Ken Rosenthal reports that four more Miami Marlins players and/or staff have tested positive for COVID-19. That would bring it to 15 people in the team’s traveling party.

As we noted earlier this morning, Rob Manfred has said that, “if we have a team or two that’s really decimated with a number of people who had the virus and can’t play for any significant period of time, it could have a real impact on the competition and we’d have to think very, very hard about what we’re doing.”

Seems like it’s time to think very, very hard, Rob.
