Coronavirus has struck MLB once again.
The Oakland A’s announced Sunday morning that a member of their organization tested positive for COVID-19 and their Sunday game against the Astros in Houston has been postponed by the league. The team is self-isolating in Houston after conducting testing and contract tracing for everyone in its traveling party, according to a release.
Coronavirus has caused significant disruption to the MLB schedule as the league attempts to play through the pandemic. Outbreaks within the Miami Marlins and St. Louis Cardinals led to long pauses in their seasons. The Mets, Phillies and Reds have also had coronavirus cases.
On Saturday, all 30 MLB teams played on the same day for the first time since July 26 and just the third time thus far in the abbreviated 60-game season that began on July 23.
