Not good news for baseball.
The Cardinals-Brewers contest on Saturday has been postponed because of more positive tests of COVID-19 with the Cardinals ballclub according to ESPN.
Three staffers and one new player (reported as Carlos Martinez) have tested positive according to reports. Three Cardinals players have tested positive since Tuesday.

Hear multiple Cardinals personnel tested positive. Don’t have breakdown of players/staff— Jon Heyman (@JonHeyman) August 1, 2020
Not all who tested positive with the Cardinals are players, source says. Combination of staff and players. https://t.co/hpHd7HMJHI— Ken Rosenthal (@Ken_Rosenthal) August 1, 2020
Jon told us he believes MLB will try and withstand a 2nd team outbreak..his gut feeling. They will try and go on. We'll see. https://t.co/fuLHU8blJx— M@ (@MattSpiegel670) August 1, 2020
Of the four new positives on the #Cardinals that I can confirm, three are staff. One is a player.— Mark Saxon (@markasaxon) August 1, 2020
Something to watch for: Will the recent events -- the Marlins' explosion of positive tests, Manfred's frank conversation with Tony Clark (as reported by @JeffPassan), and the Cardinals' breakout now compel other players to opt out? Agents say some players increasingly wavering.— Buster Olney (@Buster_ESPN) August 1, 2020
