The Cardinals' game Friday against the Chicago Cubs was postponed after another St. Louis player tested positive for COVID-19. Major League Baseball said the game was postponed to allow more time for additional testing and to complete the contact tracing process. The Cardinals have been off since last Friday, when two players returned positive coronavirus tests.
Another member of the Cardinals has reportedly tested positive for coronavirus.
It was a rarity at the time and provided a very 2020-style photo op: Oakland's masked first baseman Matt Olson chatting with Los Angeles Angels star Mike Trout, who was also masked as he prepared to run the bases. When it comes to Major League Baseball's ongoing fight to avoid COVID-19, it's the West that's had the most success. ''I'm very excited about what's happening here in the West,'' Arizona manager Torey Lovullo said.
