Phillies resume workouts after a second day of “no new” positive COVID-19 tests

Phillies to reopen Citizens Bank Park
The Phillies will return to Citizens Bank Park on Saturday afternoon for workouts following a second consecutive day of no-new positive COVID-19 tests. It'll be the first time in three days the park will be open to players.

A pair of positive tests (one coach and one clubhouse attendant) earlier this week forced Major League Baseball to postpone this weekend's series with the Blue Jays.

Through Saturday morning, no Phillies players have tested positive for COVID-19.

It's not clear when the Phillies will next play. Yankees skipper Aaron Boone mentioned Wednesday the Phils and Yanks are going to make up their four-game series this coming week, but there's been no official announcement. The two clubs were supposed to play a home-and-home set this week.
