Fantasy MLB: Yanks-Phils Scratched Again by COVID-19

New York Yankees @ Philadelphia Phillies
TODAY IN YANKEES HISTORY On today’s date (July 28) in 1983, AL president Lee McPhail upheld the Kansas City Royals’ protest of the ‘pine tar incident’, ruling that George Brett‘s home run should indeed count. Some three weeks later the game would resume from that point and KC edged New York 5-4 in the outcome.

The schedule is 0-2 in the City of Brotherly Love, with the second and final game of the 2-game set now officially postponed.

As reported by the New York Daily News, the Yankees were tested yesterday and waited around for results on the Phillies’ tests (which were not announced), then the Yanks packed up and made the trip up the Turnpike.

The two teams are scheduled to face off in The Bronx on both Wednesday and Thursday, and no announcement has been made by MLB either way at this writing. J.A. Happ was scratched from Monday night’s postponement, and Gerrit Cole was penciled in for tonight’s start. No official word yet if they’ll simply move Cole up, which is highly likely.

This season could turn into a real mess real fast. Stay tuned.
