Nationals–Phillies game postponed due to COVID-19 outbreak

MLB announced that the Nationals vs. Phillies game on Wednesday was postponed in order for testing and contact tracing to be continued on the Nationals. Wednesday’s game was originally scheduled for 7:05 p.m. ET at Citizen’s Bank Park.

A COVID-19 outbreak in Washington’s clubhouse was first reported after 12 members of the Nationals organization tested positive for COVID-19, including four players, according to manager Davey Martinez. It could be the largest outbreak any team has dealt with this season. Washington shortstop Trea Turner was removed from the first inning of Tuesday’s game between the Phillies and Nationals after testing positive for COVID-19.
