Texas hits another record for daily new coronavirus cases Fourth of July barbecue food safety: Grilling your burgers wrong could kill you this Independence Day MLS Dallas-Vancouver match delayed because of positive tests

The MLS is Back Tournament match between FC Dallas and the Vancouver Whitecaps set for Thursday has been postponed because of positive tests for the coronavirus.

The group-stage game will be rescheduled, the league said Saturday.

FC Dallas announced earlier this week that six players had tested positive for the virus upon arrival in Florida for the tournament. The entire team was quarantined.

Two Whitecaps players tested positive, forcing the team to remain in Canada, the league said. Additional tests on the players were negative, but the team had to push back travel until Monday.

The MLS is Back Tournament is set to open on Wednesday with a match between Orlando City and expansion Inter Miami.

The league's 26 teams will be sequestered in hotels for the duration of the monthlong tournament played without fans at the ESPN Wide World of Sports complex at Walt Disney World.

MLS shut down because of the coronavirus pandemic on March 12 after teams had each played two games.

The league said Saturday that 1,191 players, coaches, referees, team staff members and other connected to the tournament were tested Friday and Saturday in Florida. Two players were positive, but further details about the positive tests, including the teams impacted, were not disclosed.

FC Dallas previously announced that all players and staff tested negative for the coronavirus before leaving for the tournament on last Saturday. Upon arrival, two players tested positive. Subsequent tests found four more players infected with the virus that causes COVID-19.

“In consultation with MLS medical officials, FC Dallas took proactive steps to isolate the newly affected players as well as all FC Dallas players and staff in Orlando out of an abundance of caution. All members of the club delegation are following MLS health and safety protocols and will remain quarantined in their hotel rooms pending the results of further COVID-19 testing,” the team said in a statement.

The names of the players were not released.

The league said no other team was in contact with the FC Dallas delegation. League protocol requires players and staff to be tested every two days upon arrival in Florida.

FC Dallas will now open the tournament on July 15 against the Seattle Sounders, while the Whitecaps will play the San Jose Earthquakes later that day.

Yadier Molina among the many Cardinals battling coronavirus

Nine-time All-Star catcher Yadier Molina is among the six names the Cardinals announced that have tested positive for the novel coronavirus.

Upon approval from the players, the Cardinals also named shortstop Paul DeJong, first baseman Rangel Rovelo, pitchers Junior Fernandez and Kodi Whitley and infielder Edmundo Sosa as having tested positive for the virus.

“Good morning, I am saddened to have tested positive for COVID-19, even after following the prevention recommendations,” Molina, a nine-time All-Star wrote, wrote on Instagram.

“I’ll do everything in my power to get back ASAP for Cardinals fans, St. Louis City and my teammates. As I recover, I request that you respect my and my families’ privacy during my absence from the team. Blessings!!”

The team has reported a total of 13 confirmed cases featuring seven players and six other members of the organization that led to a four-game series in Detroit this week being postponed. They also had a series over the weekend against the Brewers in Milwaukee called off. The Cardinals are currently being quarantined in a Milwaukee hotel as the infected members of the organization are back in St. Louis in Isolation.

The team recorded no new positive tests on Tuesday.

According to MLB Network and former major league infielder Jerry Hairston Jr., multiple Cardinals players made a trip to a Minnesota casino that could have contributed to the outbreak.

Cardinals president John Mozeliak claimed to have no knowledge of the alleged trip, and believes a team member first contracted the coronavirus in St. Louis, where the team played on July 26, before traveling to face the Twins.

“I have no factual reason to believe that is true, and I have not seen any proof of that,” Mozeliak said on Monday. “If they were at a casino, though, that would be disappointing.”

The Cardinals are the third team to have their season postponed for at least a week because of the virus. The Phillies ended their week-long pause with a loss to the Yankees on Monday while the Marlins are set to return to play Tuesday against the Orioles in Baltimore. An outbreak of 21 positive cases within the Marlins led to those two teams halting play. The Phillies also had one staffer and one coach test positive.
