St. Louis Cardinals president John Mozeliak isn’t happy with the media

The Cardinals are just the latest MLB team to deal with a COVID-19 outbreak, and unfortunately that means all kinds of guesses as to how players contracted the virus in the first place.

This is the case, of course, because of rumors that the Miami Marlins went out in Atlanta on a road trip, leading to a team-wide outbreak.

Former MLB’er Jerry Hairston claimed he had heard that the Cardinals went to a casino, leading to St. Louis’ untimely demise at the hands of the coronavirus. Mozeliak didn’t necessarily deny those rumors, but instead deflected blame onto those breaking said news instead.

Mozeliak thinks it’s impossible to determine exactly where such an outbreak started with the Cardinals

“First off, I find it incredible how people are looking to find this answer as if to create this blame game,” Mozeliak said. “I find that rather sickening and annoying. We’re in a pandemic. The likelihood of where someone got this could be anywhere from a grocery store to a bar and anywhere in between.”

The plus side, per Mozeliak, is that the team hasn’t spent any time together since Wednesday, meaning they might have contained such a spread to the initial exposure. Rather than play a guessing game, the entire team has been re-tested, which will determine just how severe the outbreak is.

“We feel like we have a fairly good understanding of how isolated this is and an understanding of where this has evolved to. We’re very optimistic we can get back on the field,” Mozeliak assured reporters.

For now, the Cardinals weekend series against the Brewers has been cancelled, with an upcoming tilt against the Detroit Tigers to come.

Mattingly: Marlins sidelined by virus are feeling great

BUFFALO, N.Y. (AP) — The Miami Marlins sidelined by a coronavirus outbreak are all asymptomatic, and some have applied for reinstatement, manager Don Mattingly said Wednesday.

The Marlins placed 17 players on the injured list last week following an outbreak in Philadelphia that forced seven games to be postponed. The infected players returned to Miami to be quarantined, and will likely need rehab workouts before rejoining the team.

“They feeling great,” Mattingly said. “They all feel like they’re ready to go. There are a lot of guys who have applied for reinstatement. How long that takes, I’m not sure. But they feel like they’re ready to at least get back and start doing something.”

Players on the COVID-19 injury list must be cleared by the MLB joint committee before returning.

Mattingly made his comments before the Marlins’ game against the Blue Jays in Buffalo, where they concluded a season-opening trip that turned into a 23-day marathon because of scheduling changes necessitated by the outbreak.

The team plays at Marlins Park for the first time this season Friday against Atlanta.
