Cardinals-Brewers postponed, St. Louis reportedly has 6 total COVID-19 cases


Saturday's game between the St. Louis Cardinals and Milwaukee Brewers at Miller Park has been postponed after new positive test results for COVID-19 surfaced within the Cardinals organization, the league announced, according to Adam McCalvy of MLB.com.

The Cardinals confirmed Friday that two players tested positive, and Friday's game between St. Louis and Milwaukee was also postponed. Another Cardinals player and "multiple" staff members may be positive after the entire team underwent rapid tests in Milwaukee, MLB added in its Saturday announcement.

Six individuals within St. Louis' 58-person traveling group have tested positive, reports Derrick S. Goold of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch. All six are reportedly in isolation.

The Cardinals and Brewers are scheduled to play a doubleheader Sunday.

St. Louis is the latest MLB team to experience a COVID-19 outbreak. As of Friday, the Miami Marlins reportedly had 18 players and two coaches test positive, causing several game postponements around the league.
