The Phillies seem to be in a good position. They are a week separated from games vs. Marlins with no positives among players, and there is optimism, per sources, that their last two positives, with a coach and clubhouse attendant, were false positives. Phils back to working out.

  • False positives would be good for Phillies because it would take incubation period of the team’s most recent exposure back to last Sunday vs. Marlins. The hope is that they’d be in the clear, at least when it comes to the fallout of the Marlins’ series and its long-term impact.

  • @JeffPassan At what point does this whole fiasco come to an end? It’s ridiculous that MLB is trying to hold games and pretend the season is still happening.

  • @JeffPassan And how about the Pitchers who haven’t thrown in a week and now have to pitch in double headers most likely. Is that still considered being in a good position Jeff?

    @JeffPassan Good to see that none of the Phillies players were infected via Miami. We have still yet to see a single player who has contracted COVID on the field of play in any sport worldwide.

  • @JeffPassan MLB has to create a system for false positives. Because there’s a significant amount with this testing. If you test hundreds of people routinely there will be positives...both from the virus and from false tests. They need a plan for this
