MLB investigation says Marlins players went out, visited bars before coronavirus outbreak

The Miami Marlins were “very lapse” in following MLB’s safety protocols before a coronavirus outbreak hit the team, reports Scott Miller of Bleacher Report. That included going out while on the road in Atlanta and congregating in the hotel bar.

The news comes from MLB’s internal investigation into the Marlins outbreak, which has by Friday infected 21 players and staff members. The team’s season is paused, with infected players being bused back to Miami. Marlins games until Monday are postponed, but reports Friday indicate that the league isn’t sure they’ll return by then.
