In what may be a sign of things to come for the rest of MLB, the Miami Marlins confirmed on Tuesday the club is temporarily moving to daily coronavirus testing following an outbreak that paused campaigns for the Marlins and Philadelphia Phillies.
As noted by Jim Salisbury of NBC Sports Philadelphia, current MLB protocols for the 60-game regular season involve testing players every other day.
Miami played the Phillies in Philadelphia over the weekend before no fewer than 17 members of the Marlins tested positive for the virus. Miami is now off until at least Sunday, while the Phillies hope to be cleared to play on Friday.
MLB announced on Tuesday that none of the non-Miami clubs have returned positive coronavirus test results since last Friday.
