All Marlins games through Sunday have been postponed amid the team's COVID-19 outbreak.

The Marlins were scheduled to play the Orioles this week before hosting the Nationals for a three-game series over the weekend.

MLB released a statement saying, "Given the current circumstances, MLB believes that it is most prudent to allow the Marlins time to focus on providing care for their players and planning their Baseball Operations for a resumption early next week,"

As part of MLB's scheduling changes, the remainder of the Phillies and Yankees series this week has also been postponed. The Yankees will play the Orioles in Baltimore on Wednesday and Thursday instead and additional re-scheduling will be announced later this week.
