Per Tim Healey, the Subway Series matchup between the Yankees and the Mets has been postponed due to two positive COVID-18 results within the Mets organization. The organization has not released the names of the two positive cases. Although, sources speculate the positive testing is from one coach and one player.
The Yankees were looking to get back on the right track, as they fell short in three games to the Tampa Bay Rays. The team currently places second in the AL East, a half game back from Tampa Bay
On the other side, the Mets are coming off a series sweep against the Miami Marlins in Miami. New York’s National League team is two games below .500 and sits at 12-14 on the season.
The makeup date for the scheduled Subway Series is TBD.
