Several Miami Marlins players tested positive for Covid-19 while in Philadelphia.  The Yankees were set to use the clubhouse that had been occupied by Miami players.

The Marlins are still in Philadelphia with four more players testing positive on Tuesday, MLB Network insider Ken Rosenthal tweeted.  A total of 17 Marlins players are believed to have tested positive for the coronavirus. Early indications suggest the team may have been exposed while on board their chartered flight from Atlanta.

In what could be a ray of good news, one of the initial 11 members who tested positive has now tested negative but will need one more negative test to be cleared for play.

The Yankees’ updated plan is to check out of their Philadelphia hotel on Tuesday morning, bus to New York and hold an afternoon workout at Yankee Stadium.

It was not immediately known when these games would be made up.

The Marlins placed infielder Garrett Cooper, outfielder Harold Ramirez and right-hander Jose Urena on the injured list. They claimed right-hander Justin Shafer and left-hander Josh Smith off waivers from Cincinnati, and will likely rely heavily on reinforcements from their training camp in Jupiter, Florida.

MLB commissioner Rob Manfred told MLB Network on Monday that there are factors that would force MLB to alter plans.

"A team losing a number of players that rendered it completely noncompetitive would be an issue that we would have to address and have to think about making a change," he said. "Whether that was shutting down a part of the season, the whole season, that depends on the circumstances. Same thing with respect to leaguewide. You get to a certain point leaguewide where it does become a health threat, and we certainly would shut down at that point."
