More Cardinals test positive for COVID-19, game vs Brewers postponed

Saturday’s game between the Cardinals and Brewers has been postponed after multiple members of St. Louis’ organization tested positive for COVID-19, according to MLB Network’s Jon Heyman.

The Athletic’s Mark Saxon reports three Cardinals staffers and one player tested positive. The news of more positive tests was first reported by Craig Mish.

The news comes after Friday’s game between the Cardinals and Brewers was canceled in Milwaukee after two St. Louis players tested positive. Those two players were tested before the team’s game Wednesday against the Twins, though they did not receive the results until late Thursday night—more than 24 hours later. The Cardinals were instructed to self-isolate in their hotel rooms until further notice while the team conducted rapid testing of the entire traveling party.
