A COVID-19 outbreak within the Washington Nationals organization has forced the postponement of Wednesday’s scheduled game in Philadelphia.
According to Nationals manager Dave Martinez, the team currently has 12 positive cases, including four players and eight staffers/coaches.
One of those players is All-Star shortstop Trea Turner, who was pulled in the first inning of Tuesday’s game after returning a positive test.
Martinez said he believes one of the 12 people who have tested positive is unvaccinated.
MLB said in a statement that Wednesday’s game was postponed to “allow for continued testing and contact tracing involving members of the Nationals organization.” The game will be made up as part of a doubleheader on Thursday afternoon, with the first game scheduled for 12:05 p.m. ET.
Washington also dealt with a COVID-19 outbreak ahead of Opening Day, forcing the team to start its season five days later than it was supposed to.
