Major League Baseball officials announced Tuesday that all Miami Marlins games will be postponed through Sunday due to numerous positive COVID-19 tests among players.

"Given the current circumstances, MLB believes that it is most prudent to allow the Marlins time to focus on providing care for their players and planning their Baseball Operations for a resumption early next week," the MLB said in a statement.

The Marlins were scheduled to play the Baltimore Orioles on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday, and the Washington Nationals Friday through Sunday.

There have been at least 15 Miami Marlins players who have tested positive for the virus as of Tuesday, the Associated Press reported.
