The Miami Marlins have not played since July 24 after more than half the team tested positive for coronavirus.

The Cardinals have been in quarantine since Thursday, when their series with the Milwaukee Brewers was also postponed due to positive tests.

The Cardinals have had 13 members of the organization test positive for COVID-19 over the past week, including seven players. "I will do everything within my power to return as soon as possible for Cardinals fans, the city of St. Louis and my teammates".

The Cardinals are tentatively scheduled to resume play Friday in St. Louis against the Chicago Cubs.

It was reported that some Cardinals were caught visiting a casino before the outbreak, but the team General Manager John Mozeliak has said he has seen no evidence of that. The team issued a statement late Sunday saying it was still waiting on test results.

The St. Louis Cardinals most recently won the World Series in 2011.

There are now concerns if the Cardinals have unwittingly infected the Minnesota Twins with whom they were playing earlier this week.

The team is now living in a Milwaukee hotel after a series against the Brewers was postponed following an outbreak that affected seven Cardinals players and six staff members.

Atlanta Braves pitching ace Mike Soroka is out for the rest of the season after tearing his right Achilles tendon during a game against the New York Mets Monday night.

Major League Baseball's "Field of Dreams" game that was set to be played in Iowa on August 13 has been postponed until next season because of the coronavirus pandemic.
