ST. LOUIS — The Cardinals' wait to resume play after an outbreak of COVID-19 throughout the team looks to be extended once again.

On Friday, Cardinals President of Baseball Operations John Mozeliak confirmed that the weekend series at Busch Stadium against the Cubs had been postponed. Friday's game had already been postponed that morning after the team announced another player had tested positive for COVID-19.

Mozeliak announced pitcher Ryan Helsley and outfielder Austin Dean were the two new player positives. One new staff member also tested positive.

The most recent positive tests brings the number of members of the organization to test positive to 16, with nine of those now being players.

The Cardinals had already been forced to postpone their last two series with the Milwaukee Brewers and Detroit Tigers. 

If the team hope to complete its 60-game schedule, it will now have to play 55 games in a span of 49 days.
