The Miami Marlins are supposed to end an eight-day hiatus with a game at Camden Yards on Monday night against the Orioles, but those plans have been temporarily put on hold.
Major League Baseball released a statement around three hours before the scheduled 7:35 p.m. start saying the game "may be delayed as we await the final test results clearing the Marlins to resume play."
The team had not arrived at the ballpark by 4:45, but the Marlins were expected to receive clearance to play from MLB shortly after that, a person familiar with the situation told the AP on condition of anonymity.
Miami hasn’t played a game since July 26. After that series against the Phillies, the Marlins’ season was suspended because of a coronavirus outbreak on the team. At least 18 players, and 21 in the travelling party, tested positive.
Monday night’s game is a makeup from July 29, which was supposed to be Baltimore’s home opener. The Orioles instead played the New York Yankees.
