Outfielder Harold Ramirez was reportedly one of the club's players who tested positive in recent days. Ramirez, 25, told a Spanish television program on Wednesday, that he's the only person on the Marlins currently experiencing symptoms, including a cough and body aches. In his interview, Ramirez advocated for the idea of a one-location "bubble" for the 2020 Major League Baseball, saying that it could help avoid an outbreak like this.

The plan for MLB's 2020 season -- which began one week ago -- is unique in that it is the first pro team sports league to have teams playing in their home stadiums and traveling for road games instead of playing in a one-location bubble. The National Women's Soccer League completed its comeback with the 2020 Challenge Cup Tournament-- in a bubble -- with zero positive COVID-19 cases in Utah.

The NBA is also attempting a bubble restart, where they will play all of their games in the Orlando area. On the eve of the NBA resuming the season, the league announced that for the second consecutive week zero players tested positive for COVID-19. The NHL will enact a similar bubble situation with all teams playing in two hub cities in Canada for their Stanley Cup playoffs. In the NHL's recent round of testing (before teams left for Canada), none came back positive. The WNBA started its 2020 season in a bubble over the weekend as well.

Currently, the Marlins revised schedule has the club off until Monday, Aug. 3, at the earliest.

In this case, Rosenthal says, contract tracing efforts had already identified the particular player as likely to have been exposed. That doesn’t change the gravity of the situation.
