NEW Media Staff

Saturday's game between the Milwaukee Brewers and St. Louis Cardinals was postponed because of more positive COVID-19 tests on the Cardinals' roster.

The news was reported by MLB Network's Jon Heyman and later confirmed by ESPN's Jeff Passan.

An announcement on Sunday's doubleheader between the two teams has not been made as of 12:20 p.m.

Whenever the Brewers do take the field again, they will do so without outfielder Lorenzo Cain, who opted out of the remainder of the 2020 season.

The organization made the announcement on social media just before noon.

"Lorenzo Cain has informed us that he will not participate for the remainder of the 2020 season. We fully support Lorenzo's decision, and we will miss his talents on the field and leadership in the clubhouse," stated David Stearns, the team's president, in the social media post.

The MLB season as a whole could also be in jeopardy.

Late Friday night, ESPN's Keith Olbermann tweeted, "Breaking News: multiple sources inside and outside the game report MLB has warned its TV outlets to have alternate programming for games as early as Monday."
