UPDATE: Brewers’ home opener with St. Louis postponed because of COVID-19

Positive test(s) in Cardinals’ clubhouse force cancellation of today’s game

MLB: Milwaukee Brewers at St. Louis Cardinals Jeff Curry-USA TODAY Sports

UPDATE: Two St. Louis players tested positive for COVID-19. There was reporting that games on Friday and Saturday were to be postponed. That has since been corrected, and as of now only Friday’s game has been postponed. The hope is that the two teams can play a double header at Miller Park on Sunday.

President of Baseball Operations for the Milwaukee Brewers, David Stearns put out an announcement just recently.

The Milwaukee Brewers were supposed to play their first game at Miller Park this afternoon against the St. Louis Cardinals. Unfortunately that won’t be happening.

COVID-19 has reared its ugly head in the Cardinals’ clubhouse.

Sources have confirmed Heyman’s tweet.

As Passan points out, there are no reports of how many Cardinals’ players tested positive. There is information indicating that if the rest of the Cardinals’ team tests negative, the series will get started on Saturday.

For now all we absolutely know is Brewers’ baseball at Miller Park will have to wait. As more information becomes available, we will share that with you. Stay tuned.
