The Milwaukee Brewers' scheduled home opener Friday afternooon at Miller Park against St. Louis has been postponed because of positive coronavirus tests with the Cardinals travel party.
Jon Heyman of the MLB Network was first to report the game had been postponed because of positive tests with the Cardinals. A source confirmed that St. Louis' travel party was instructed to self-isolate in their hotel in Milwaukee. 
St. Louis played in Minnesota on Tuesday and Wednesday, and was off yesterday. If the Cardinals have to remain quarantined in their hotel, it could lead to the postponement of the entire weekend series at Miller Park.
After three Miami players tested positive last Sunday morning in Philadelphia, the game against the Phillies was allowed to be played, and later several other players had positive tests, forcing the team to isolate in their hotel there. Neither the Marlins nor the Phillies have been allowed to play a game since, and MLB stepped in immediately this time to call off the Brewers-Cardinals game.
