The scheduled weekend series between the Phillies and the Blue Jays has been postponed, Toronto captain Charlie Montoyo tells reporters including Sportsnet.ca’s Ben Nicholson-Smith (via Twitter) . For now, the Jacks will hang strictly in DC and wait for another word after we close their series with the Nats.
This adds to an ongoing MLB scheduling schedule that would require increasingly convoluted mid-season adaptations. The hope was that the Marlins COVID-19 explosion would remain at that club. But this morning it emerged that two non-player members of the Phillies organization came down with infections.
With two teams aside, their planned opponents are also on the ice. In this case, the Jacks and Nats may actually end up hanging out waiting in the same place. There is still no word on whether the league will try in any way to contest competitions between those two organizations in order to stay the cutting matches.
