Major League Baseball on Tuesday suspended the Miami Marlins' season through Sunday and that of the Philadelphia Phillies until Friday, after an outbreak of the coronavirus on the Marlins.

AP cited a source as saying four more Marlins players have tested positive, for a total of 15. The Phillies played against the Marlins last weekend, and MLB said their games were also being suspended “out of an abundance of caution,” even though no Philadelphia players have tested positive.

The Phillies were supposed to play the New York Yankees this week, but now New York will play the Orioles instead, who had been scheduled to play the Marlins.
