Yesterday, the MLB followed suit with the rest of the professional sports leagues, suspending all activities and delaying the start of the regular season for at least two weeks. Scheduled Spring Training games will not take place, and there is no timetable for a return to action. Of course, the MLB won’t just start the regular season when this is over. There will be a block of games to get the players stretched out when they do decide to resume activities. Today, general manager Alex Anthopoulos gave us a rundown of what the plan is for the team moving forward:

That last part may seem far-fetched, but this issue became a lot more severe when Rudy Gobert tested positive for the Coronavirus before Wednesday night’s game against the Oklahoma City Thunder. Yesterday, it was revealed his teammate, Donovan Mitchell, also contracted the illness.

While I am in no position to speculate since I’m not a medical professional, I do not see this hiatus ending anytime soon. It’s likely the season won’t start until at least May. We will keep you posted with all updates regarding the plan moving forward for all teams.
