(WTOK) - The Miami Marlins home opener against the Baltimore Orioles and the New York Yankees versus the Philadelphia Phillies on Monday have been postponed, as coronavirus cases continue to pop up among the Miami Marlins.

Eight more players and two coaches with the Marlins have tested positive for the coronavirus, as an outbreak has spread throughout their clubhouse and brought the total cases in recent days to at least 14, sources familiar with the situation told ESPN.

The Marlins remain in Philadelphia and continue to undergo testing after their weekend series against the Phillies.

Questions about the Yankees versus the Phillies started to come up because the Yankees would be in the same locker room the Marlins were in the night prior.

The MLB season is now in jeopardy of being canceled.
