Nationals Are “Dealing with a COVID Outbreak,” Game Against Phillies in Jeopardy (POSTPONED)

Chicago Cubs

As near as I can recall, we’ve had only one game this year lost to a COVID postponement – the Yankees-Red Sox tilt that was supposed to be a spotlight game on the Thursday of the All-Star break.

But that might change tonight, after Trea Turner tested positive mid-game last night, and now there may be an outbreak:

The whole thing is bad for obvious reasons, but I’m sure it’s all the more challenging at a time when these teams are focused on Trade Deadline issues. An outbreak could really throw a wrench into things, to say nothing of just wanting people to be healthy and safe and vaccinated and all that stuff.

We’ll see what happens tonight.

UPDATE: No game:

Hopefully the outbreak isn’t too significant, but there must be additional positives and/or a large number of guys undergoing contact tracing.

UPDATE 2: Oof. Really not good:
