ST. LOUIS- The MLB says tonight’s Cardinals game against the Cubs has been postponed along with the rest of the Cubs-Cardinals series due to more positive COVID-19 test results.

The move comes after three additional positive tests came back. The positive tests are from two players and one staff member. The total number of positive COVID-19 cases within the Cardinals organization is 16, nine of which are players. The two latest players to test positive are reliever Ryan Helsley and utility man Austin Dean. Helsley has a low-grade fever, Dean and the unidentified staffer are asymptomatic.

The series is postponed to allow for additional testing and to complete contact tracing. The Cubs are already back in Chicago.

The Cardinals arrived back in St. Louis Wednesday after being quarantined in Milwaukee due to COVID. The team also had to postpone games in Detroit and Milwaukee after 7 players and 6 staff members tested positive for COVID.
