The New York Yankees and Philadelphia Phillies will not play their Monday night game as scheduled, according to The Athletic’s Ken Rosenthal. The game at Citizens Bank Park has been postponed. The game’s status had been an open question since Monday morning, when the Miami Marlins were confirmed to have a COVID-19 outbreak on their roster.

The Marlins, who played the Phillies in Philadelphia over the weekend in Philadelphia, reportedly have had at least 14 individuals test positive since last week. That group includes catcher Jorge Alfaro, outfielders Garrett Cooper and Harold Ramirez, and pitcher Jose Urena, whose positive test forced him to be scratched from his Sunday start.
In response to that news, the Marlins’ home opener, which was scheduled for Monday night against the Baltimore Orioles, has also been postponed.
