Cardinals Hopeful to Move Forward with 2020 Season
The St. Louis Cardinals are continuing to deal with a COVID-19 outbreak within the team. The team’s traveling party has reported 13 positive tests. Of those positive tests, eight are showing mild symptoms of headaches, coughing, and low-grade fever. St. Louis Cardinals President of Baseball Operations John Mozeliak says the team’s contact tracing revealed how quickly this virus can spread.
Mozeliak adds that it also shows just how challenging it can be to keep the virus contained within the context of the Major League season.
The outbreak within the team forced their scheduled series against both Milwaukee and Detroit to be postponed. Despite the positive tests, Mozeliak is optimistic about recent testing trends within the team.
A total of seven players and six staff members have tested positive for the virus. All of them have been sent back to St. Louis while the rest of the team remains in Milwaukee. Despite the positive tests, Mozeliak is hopeful for the future.
The team is hoping to leave for St. Louis Wednesday. From there, the Cardinals’ next scheduled game would be at home Friday against the Chicago Cubs. Pregame coverage on Supertstation KRES would be scheduled for 6:20 pm.
