Mets have coronavirus cases; games vs. Marlins, Yankees postponed

The New York Mets won't play the Miami Marlins on Thursday evening or the Yankees on Friday after two people associated with the Amazins tested positive for the coronavirus. 

MLB insider Jon Heyman reported that the Mets had a player and staff member test positive, which Newsday's Tim Healey confirmed.

Healey added that MLB has made it official; the Mets' games versus the Marlins and Yankees have been postponed:

The Mets and Yankees could make up Friday's fixture via a doubleheader over the weekend, but the Mets first must be cleared to play. 

Coronavirus cases within the Marlins, St. Louis Cardinals, and Cincinnati Reds caused those clubs to miss multiple contests this summer. Barring the discovery of what are known as "false positive" results, the Mets could be sidelined through the weekend to prevent exposure to Yankees personnel.
