Rob Manfred speaks about Marlins Coronavirus Situation
Major League Baseball Commissioner Rob Manfred is now speaking about the Miami Marlins Coronavirus situation. He believes the league has a proper system in place to deal with an outbreak within a team.
Manfred said on the MLB Network, “I don’t see it as a nightmare. We built the protocols to allow us to continue to play. That’s why we have the expanded rosters. That’s why we have the pool of additional players, and we think we can keep people safe and continue to play.”
The Marlins are in quarantine now, after 17 members of their team were tested positive for COVID-19, during their weekend series against the Philadelphia Phillies. It forced the postponement of the Marlins season opener against the Baltimore Orioles on Monday, and the today’s game as well. Monday’s game of the New York Yankees and Philadelphia Phillies was also put on hold, since the Phils faced the Fish.
