More coronavirus issues for MLB. the league has just postponed the Brewers vs. Cardinals game Friday due to multiple positive COVID tests, baseball insider Jon Heyman reports. ESPN's Jeff Passan confirmed the news, indicating that the Cardinals did have positive tests.

The Brewers were set to take on the Cardinals at 1:10 p.m.at Miller Park. And now there's already another huge question looming over other teams and other games, and at least one postponement. The Marlins had remained in Philadelphia, receiving tests and treatment there, but the Associated Press reported Friday morning that they were finally en route back to South Florida by bus. As the week progressed, 17 players and coaches had reportedly contracted the virus. The Twins hosted Cleveland Thursday night, meaning the Indians likely used the same visiting clubhouse as St. Louis.

The New York Yankees had games postponed against Philadelphia this week, too. Minnesota is scheduled to host the Indians again Friday night.
