Yahoo Sports is reporting Major League Baseball’s season could be in jeopardy if teams and players can’t contain the coronavirus, commissioner Rob Manfred is warning, just a week after opening day.

And the shutdown could happen as soon as Monday.

According to ESPN’s Jeff Passan, Manfred sent this warning to the players union on Friday — at the conclusion of a week that’s seen the league ravaged by positive tests. The Miami Marlins and Philadelphia Phillies have their seasons on pause after a rash of positive tests.

On Friday alone, six teams aren’t playing games because of the wide-ranging effects of players testing positive. The St. Louis Cardinals were the latest team impacted, with two positive tests announced Friday.

The latest testing results, released Friday afternoon by MLB, say this week the league took 11,895 samples with 29 positives, or 0.2 percent. The troubling part is that 21 of those came from the same team, which we know to be the Marlins. It brings MLB’s total testing numbers to 40,783 with 58 positives, or 0.1 percent of those tested.
