The Miami Marlins Major League Baseball team games have been postponed following a coronavirus breakout that stranded them in Philadelphia. 14 players and a coach tested positive for the coronavirus.
"The members of the Marlins' traveling party are self-quarantining in place while awaiting the outcome of those results," MLB said in a statement.

Manager Don Mattingly said members of the team would be quarantined in Philadelphia.
The team's home opener against Baltimore was postponed, as well as the New York Yankees' game at Philadelphia, as the Yankees would have used the same clubhouse as the Marlins.
Teammates texted each other about the team's positive tests, but there was no talk of quitting the season.
"We knew this could happen at some point. We came to the ballpark ready to play," said shortstop Miguel Rojas.
The Marlins played exhibition games in Atlanta against the Braves on Tuesday and Wednesday. The Braves have since been without their top two catchers, Tyler Flowers and Travis d'Arnaud, who both showed flu-like symptoms after the games.
Being cooped up in the house for three months on quarantine is taking a toll on many couples who suddenly realize they don't really like each other.
Atlanta Braves outfielder Marcell Ozuna's wife hit him in the face with a soap dish during a verbal argument that got out of hand.
Ozuna suffered a facial injury when his wife Genesis threw a soap dish at him a couple of weeks ago.
Medics were called to the scene where they treated a "small laceration" on Ozuna's face.
Ozuna drove himself to a police station to file a police report on his wife.
Genesis pleaded not guilty to aggravated assault and was given a stay away order.
Rumor has it that Genesis suspects Ozuna of cheating on her during the coronavirus quarantine.
The Braves are among the teams preparing to take the field when Major League Baseball resumes its season this summer.
Braves player Freddie Freeman and his wife Chelsea drove to Spring training camp in Florida. Like her owners, Nala the cat relaxed and settled in for the long drive.
The only problem is cats don't relax and settle in for long drives in cars. Not normal cats anyway.
