Cardinals players reportedly went to casino before COVID-19 outbreak

Multiple St. Louis Cardinals players reportedly went to a casino before an outbreak of COVID-19 hit the organization, according to Jon Heyman of MLB Network.

There are four Cardinals players and three staff members who have tested positive for the coronavirus, while updated test results reportedly are “not good” with new positives expected, per Jeff Passan of ESPN.

St. Louis was forced to postpone its entire series against the Milwaukee Brewers this past weekend.

Cardinals president of baseball operations John Mozeliak later told reporters the report of players going to a casino was “not true, to his knowledge.”

St. Louis is currently scheduled to resume its season today against the Detroit Tigers, but the team is still waiting on more COVID-19 test results.
