No news truly can be good news.
On the same day that MLB commissioner Rob Manfred heavily implied that coronavirus outbreaks within the Miami Marlins and St. Louis Cardinals were caused by careless actions committed by members of those organizations, MLB insider Jon Heyman tweeted that the league had zero positive test results from Tuesday:
MLB had no positive tests from yesterday among any teams, so they appear to be moving in the right direction, especially compared to last week. 30 teams could be on field Friday as opposed to last weekend when there were 6 absent.— Jon Heyman (@JonHeyman) August 5, 2020
The virus spread within the Marlins forced the temporary suspension of the team's season from July 27 through Aug. 3. Miami defeated the Baltimore Orioles 4-0 on Tuesday to resume its campaign.
St. Louis, meanwhile, hasn't played since a July 29 loss to the Minnesota Twins. The Cardinals aren't expected to be cleared to return to the diamond until Friday when St. Louis is scheduled to host the Chicago Cubs.
The NHL, NBA, WNBA, Major League Soccer, and National Women's Soccer League all housed personnel inside isolated bubble sites to prevent virus outbreaks before and during return-to-play scenarios.
