Before beginning their series rubber match with the Phillies and traveling back home to host the Orioles, multiple Marlins players reportedly tested positive for coronavirus.

According to Sports Grid's Craig Mish, at least four players tested positive for COVID-19. One of those players is starting pitcher Jose Urena, per MLB Network's Jon Heyman, while one of the position players is reportedly first baseman Garrett Cooper

Urena was scheduled to start against Philadelphia Sunday but was scratched a few hours before game time. Jon Heyman reported that Urena "feels fine," while details regarding the names of the remaining two position players to test positive unclear.

After the Marlins and Orioles both conclude their respective road games in Philadelphia and Boston, they will both travel Miami to begin a four-game series on Monday. Florida has been one of the virus' hotbeds in June and July, reporting over 12,000 new cases on July 25. 

Whether Miami's recent test results will impact their upcoming series with Baltimore is unknown, though they did begin their game against the Phillies Sunday on time with Robert Dugger taking over on the mound for Urena.
