Rockies left fielder Corey Dickerson made an early exit from Monday’s series opener against the Padres after experiencing a flareup of the plantar fasciitis in his left foot and he was given the day off Tuesday.
And third baseman Nolan Arenado missed each of those games due to mild soreness in his left wrist. But they’ve both returned for Wednesday night’s tilt against San Diego ace James Shields …
Dickerson and Arenado have combined for five homers, 20 RBI, and 18 runs scored in 10 games this year.
A doubleheader between the St. Louis Cardinals and Detroit Tigers this week is being postponed to allow more time for additional COVID-19 testing.
MLB opted to postpone Thursday’s doubleheader to continue additional testing while players and staff are quarantined before the team returns to play. More details about the Cardinals’ resumption of play will be announced later this week.
The Cardinals had a series against Pittsburgh set to start on Monday postponed after a weekend series against the Cubs was scrapped due to three positive coronavirus tests.
St. Louis had two more players and a staff member test positive for the virus on Friday and have had eight positive players overall, including star catcher Yadier Molina.
There have now been 29 games postponed by Major League Baseball because of coronavirus concerns. The Cardinals have not played since July 30 and have had 15 games scrapped.
Miami and Philadelphia each had seven games postponed earlier and have returned to the field since the disruptions.
