If you’ve been on line at all nowadays, there’s no doubt you’ve found the terrifying information all-around MLB: The Marlins have 14 scenarios of COVID-19 inside their corporation, and numerous video games have been cancelled across the league as a outcome.
But alongside that news was a quieter tale about the Reds, who had just one player (Matt Davidson) exam positive on Friday and two others, Mike Moustakas and Nick Senzel, get scratched in excess of the weekend for the reason that they had been not emotion very well.
In mild of what transpired with the Marlins, there was some concern that tonight’s Cubs sport from the Reds was heading to get postponed. But because this early morning, the Cubs player rep, Ian Happ, has been in call with the Reds as very well as the other 30 team reps across the league, and matters were/are wanting good for the video game to go on as scheduled. And in addition to these discussions, Cubs Manager David Ross discovered that he gained a far more comprehensive rationalization of what is been likely on with the Reds, which led to an organizational resolve that “it’s harmless to action on the subject with them” tonight.
Jordan Bastian shares the estimate with some added information out of Cincinnati:
Ross on interaction w/ Reds: “There’s been an rationalization of what’s long gone on over there and the details, kind of the powering the scenes seem. And then we’ve created a dedication that we sense like it can be safe and sound to move on the discipline with them.”

We really don’t have many more specifics than that for now, but Moustakas has since been put on the hurt checklist, and Senzel is not in the beginning lineup (although I feel he’s continue to on the lively roster as of now).
