Brady and his teammates continued to work out together, and Brady posted a quote on Instagram that appeared to be a response to Mayer’s advice.— Field Yates (@FieldYates)

The proposed changes, if enacted, would be in place for the 2020 season. Right now, the 2 matters are only under discussion. No firm decisions made by the union or MLB. https://t.— Adrian Wojnarowski (@wojespn)

One Phillies coach, one clubhouse staffer test positive for COVID-19 .
The plan had been for the Phillies to resume play on Saturday. Whether that is now in jeopardy isn’t known. The organization has already dealt with some infections earlier this year, but managed to avoid further spread within the club.This is worrisome news on several levels. First and foremost, it’s concerning to see two more individuals in the game carrying this disease. Hopefully they’ll both make a swift and full recovery.Beyond that, it’s obviously concerning to see that spread (presumably) occurred between the teams.
