UPDATE Friday 12:04 p.m.: The entire Mets-Yankees series scheduled for this weekend has been postponed, per reporter Lindsey Adler.

UPDATE 5:16 p.m.: The Mets series opener with the Yankees on Friday has been postponed, per reporter Tim Britton.

UPDATE 5:08 p.m.: Ken Rosenthal is reporting the Mets have one player and one staffer who have tested positive for Covid-19.

The New York Mets will not be wrapping up their four-game series with the Miami Marlins on Thursday. The game is being postponed after a Mets player tested positive for Covid-19, according to reporter Jon Heyman.

Seth Luogo was scheduled to start for the Mets, while Daniel Castano was to take the hill for the Marlins. The Mets are scheduled to return to New York and begin a weekend series with the New York Yankees on Friday, but there is no word on what’s next in that regard. The Marlins are scheduled to travel to Washington, DC to face the Washington Nationals over five games, that includes some make-up games from previous postponements.

The Mets and Marlins are scheduled to open a three-game series at Citi Field in New York next Tuesday. If the Mets are cleared through Covid protocols by then, we could see a double-header to make up for Thursday’s postponement.
