Two Mets Test Positive For Coronavirus

Two members of the New York Mets organization have tested positive for coronavirus

According to MLB Network’s Jon Heyman, Thursday night’s New York Mets game against the Miami Marlins has been postponed due to a positive COVID-19 test. One staff member and one player have reportedly tested positive.

Contact tracing and re-testing of the Mets and Marlins rosters will ensue, and the teams will be quarantined for the time being. 

Thursday was supposed to be the Mets’ final game of a series in Miami against the Marlins. Florida of course is one of the coronavirus hotspots of the world. Friday’s game against the New York Yankees in the historic “Subway Series” has been postponed as well. 

The Mets are now the fifth MLB team to have at least one positive case, others include the Marlins, Phillies, Reds, and Cardinals.

UPDATE: The Mets weekend series against the Yankees has been postponed. The two teams are looking at playing a doubleheader on Monday, if no further tests come back positive. Mets players who were not found to be in close contact with the positive’s flew back to New York last night and are currently quarantining.
