The team announced the positive tests before Thursday night's game against the Marlins. The Mets won't play that matchup against the Marlins in Miami, and the Friday opener of their weekend series against the New York Yankees at Citi Field also has been postponed.
"The New York Mets learned today that two members of the organization have tested positive for COVID-19 and Major League Baseball has postponed tonight's game at Miami and tomorrow's game vs. the Yankees at Citi Field," the team said in a statement Thursday.
"The team will fly back home to New York tonight with recommended safety precautions in place and conduct testing with the entire traveling party. The team is currently conducting contact tracing and the two members that tested positive along with those traced to be within close contact will remain in Miami tonight."
MLB said the postponements of the games were made "out of an abundance of caution and to allow for additional testing and contact tracing."
