The Miami Marlins? home opener against the Baltimore Orioles, set for a 7:10 p.m. first pitch Monday night, has been canceled as COVID-19 has spread through the team, according to multiple reports.


ESPN?s Jeff Passan reported Monday morning that at least 10 more positive cases ? eight players and two coaches ? surfaced after the team?s latest round of testing on Sunday. That comes after four players received positive test results during the team?s trip to Philadelphia, including three starters finding out before Sunday?s series finale.

Sources: MLB commissioner warns of shutdown if coronavirus isn't better managed


Major League Baseball commissioner Rob Manfred told MLB Players Association executive director Tony Clark on Friday that if the sport doesn't do a better job of managing the coronavirus, it could shut down for the season, sources familiar with the conversation told ESPN.


The league and players recognize the coming days are a critical juncture following an outbreak among the Miami Marlins in which 18 players and two coaches have tested positive for COVID-19. Two positive tests by St. Louis Cardinals players on Friday exacerbated concerns inside the sport about the presence of the coronavirus and whether the jointly agreed-upon protocols are being followed properly to prevent outbreaks similar to Miami's.


Should another outbreak materialize, Manfred, who has the power to shut down the season, could move in that direction. Multiple players briefed on the call fear the season could be shut down as soon as Monday if positive tests jump or if players continue not to strictly abide by the league's protocols.
