Dating back to last Friday (7/31), the Cardinals’ organization has reported 13 positive cases of COVID-19, infecting seven players and six staff members. As the test results came in over the weekend, the three-game series in Milwaukee was postponed. On Monday, MLB announced the four games between the Cardinals and Tigers in Detroit this week have also been postponed. As things stand now, the Cardinals next game will be Friday against the Cubs in St. Louis.
