With the outbreak of positive tests for Covide 19 among the Miami Marlins, the baseball season is in jeopardy again after only the first weekend.
As of now, 14 Marlins and staff have tested positive for Covide 19. They have not left Philadelphia at last report. One would think a quarantine is in order. Reports are the Phillies visiting locker room staff is under quarantine after yesterday’s Marlins-Phillies game. Now reports are that tonight’s Phillies/Yankees game at CBP has been postponed.
The Phillies appear not to have enough position players for all positions at one time available on the Taxi Squad for replacements , if a major breakout happens on the major league roster.
Over the weekend only eight position player s were available. Coaches had to be used to fill out a roster for the two games played at Coca-Cola Park in Allentown. Taxi squad position players in camp who hit in yesterday’s scrimmage game were Alec Bohm, Rafael Marchan, Ronald Torreyes, Mikie Mahtook, Nick Martini, Nick Maton, Deivy Grullon and Logan O’Hoppe.
The pitchers who threw in yesterday’s 3 1/2 inning game were Spencer Howard, Connor Brogdon, Garrett Cleavinger and Addison Russ.
To me the entire MLB season is in jeopardy after what happened to the Marlins over the weekend.
