MLB Schedule Changes: Where Things Stand Following Marlins COVID-19 Outbreak


The COVID-19 outbreak among Marlins players and coaches has Major League Baseball making some adjustments on the fly.

The league announced scheduling changes on Tuesday after the Marlins temporarily put their season on hold.

In addition to the changes to the schedule, the league also revealed that since Friday, July 24, there have been no new positive COVID-19 tests from any on-field personnel of any of the other 29 teams.

Still, the Marlins outbreak has had an impact on a handful of other teams. Here is the current plan:

Miami Marlins

The Marlins will not play any games before Monday, Aug. 3, which is currently slated as an off day for the team. If they return to their regular schedule on Tuesday, Aug. 3 they would play the Phillies in Miami, at the moment.

Philadelphia Phillies

The Phillies, who were scheduled to play the Yankees in New York on Wednesday and Thursday, will not play in any games before Friday, July 31, when they are scheduled to play the Blue Jays in Buffalo.

New York Yankees and Baltimore Orioles

The New York Yankees and Baltimore Orioles will now play each other in Camden Yards on Wednesday and Thursday. The Yankees were originally scheduled to play the Phillies at home on those dates, while their games in Philadelphia on Monday and Tuesday were called off.

The Orioles were originally supposed to play the Marlins at home on those dates, while their previous two games against the Marlins in Miami were also called off.

Washington Nationals

The Nationals will not play any games this weekend, which were scheduled against the Marlins in Miami. The team had voted earlier on Tuesday that they would not travel to Miami due to COVID concerns.
