UPDATE 5:47 p.m.: The Marlins Tuesday game against the Orioles has been postponed because test results are taking some time, according to Karl Ravech. The hope is to play on Wednesday, pending the outcome of these results.

Major League Baseball is sorting out its plans for how to get the Miami Marlins playing again, and the latest option is a trip to Baltimore, according to MLB columnist Scott Miller.

The Marlins were scheduled to play the Baltimore Orioles in Miami starting Monday, but the series opener was postponed after a reported Covid-19 outbreak on the Marlins roster. A double digit number of players and coaches tested positive for the novel coronavirus, and the Marlins remain in Philadelphia getting tested.

If Marlins get cleared in Philadelphia, MLB’s new plan is for the team to take a bus to Baltimore and play Tuesday’s game at Camden Yards instead of in Miami. Some members of the Marlins taxi squad would travel to Baltimore as well to fill out Miami’s roster, according to Miller.
