No Phillies player or staff has tested positive for the coronavirus despite playing against the Marlins in Philadelphia and seeing 17 members of the Miami tour group test positive, sources told ESPN’s Jeff Passan.
The news comes after sources said Tuesday’s game in Philadelphia between the New York Yankees and the Phillies has been postponed.
It is the second consecutive clash between clubs that was postponed after 13 members of the Marlins’ tour group tested positive for the coronavirus. On Tuesday, sources said four other Marlins tested positive.
NBC Sports Philadelphia reported that the Phillies will re-evaluate all members of their tour group later Tuesday at Citizens Bank Park and will travel to New York on Wednesday.
The Yankees will leave Philadelphia on Tuesday afternoon to return to New York, where they will practice at Yankee Stadium, sources told ESPN’s Marly Rivera.
The Yankees were told Tuesday’s game was being postponed as a precaution, sources told ESPN’s Karl Ravech. The postponement was first reported by the New York Post.
