The Philadelphia Phillies were scheduled to return to play on Saturday against the Toronto Blue Jays, but that series is now postponed, per Sportsnet’s Ben Nicholson-Smith. The Phillies announced on Thursday that a member of the coaching staff and a member of the home clubhouse staff have tested positive for Covid-19 and all activity at the stadium is canceled until further notice.

The Phillies have not played since a weekend series against the Miami Marlins. Their four-game series with the New York Yankees that was scheduled to start on Monday was postponed after over half the Marlins roster tested positive for Covid-19.

The Toronto Blue Jays were scheduled to come to Philadelphia on Friday. That had initially been delayed so that the two teams would play a doubleheader on Saturday and one game on Sunday. That has now been postponed indefinitely. The Blue Jays are currently playing the Washington Nationals and Nicholson-Smith is reporting they will ask the Nationals for permission to stay in D.C. and keep working out over the weekend. If that doesn’t work out, they could head back to Buffalo where they are set to play their home games this season.
