Report: Brewers home opener postponed again after more positive COVID tests
MILWAUKEE - The Brewers' rescheduled home opener against the St. Louis Cardinals has been postponed yet again after more Cardinals tested positive for COVID-19.

According to The Athletic's Ken Rosenthal, between four more Cardinals tested positive; one player and three staff members.

MLB commissioner Rob Manfred told players' union president Tony Clark that a potential league shutdown could come as early as Monday if there's a significant spike in COVID positives over the weekend, per Keith Olbermann of ESPN.
