NEW YORK (77 WABC) — The brief two-game series between the Yankees and Phillies was postponed after the Tuesday night game was also scrubbed.
It started with Miami Marlins players and coaches testing positive for COVID-19 before leaving Philadelphia from a weekend series.
Tests from Phillies players and staff showed no positives yesterday, ESPN reported. Another round of tests is expected today.
The Yankees are expected to return home today with a workout in the Bronx. They are scheduled to host the Phillies Wednesday and Thursday.
While the Marlins remain in Philly, four more players have tested positive, bringing the total to 17.
With tonight's game postponed, Phillies are planning to bus to New York tomorrow for tomorrow night's game at Yankee Stadium.
