Phillies-Yankees game postponed due to COVID-19 outbreak

Phillies and Yankees postponed
Tonight’s scheduled contest between the Phillies and Yankees at Citizens Bank Park has been postponed because of COVID-19 concerns, according to multiple sources.

The postponement comes as news continues to break regarding positive COVID-19 tests from the Marlins traveling party. The Marlins were at Citizens Bank Park for a three-game set this past weekend.

Eleven players and two coaches from the Marlins have tested positive, per sources.

The Marlins are quarantining at a hotel in Philadelphia.

There's no immediate word on what's next for the Phillies. The club is scheduled to host the Yankees for two games before heading to the Bronx for a pair to conclude a home-and-home series.
