NEW YORK (AP) — Another player with the Miami Marlins has tested positive for the coronavirus, bringing the team’s outbreak total to 17 players, according to a person familiar with the situation.

The Philadelphia Phillies, meanwhile, said Thursday there were no positive results among players from Wednesday’s testing. Two staffers, however, did test positive.

One is a member of the coaching staff and one is a member of the home clubhouse staff. All activity at Citizens Bank Park was canceled Thursday until further notice.

The Marlins remain quarantined in Philadelphia, where the outbreak was discovered during a weekend series against the Phillies. Two staff members have also tested positive.

The person who spoke to The Associated Press on Thursday about the Marlins did so on condition of anonymity because test results were not announced.

Miami’s season has been suspended through at least Sunday, and it appears the schedule will be altered next week, too.

The Marlins are supposed to host Philadelphia on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday, but Phillies general manager Matt Klentak and Yankees manager Aaron Boone said yesterday that MLB is working to have Philadelphia play New York instead, creating uncertainty about when and where Miami will resume.

The Athletic first reported the positive test.
