MLB’s season outlook is getting bleaker by the day with COVID continuing to wreak havoc across the league. The Marlins and Phillies haven’t seen the field since Sunday while the Cardinals, Brewers, Blue Jays and Nationals find themselves in similar limbo. Simply put, the league is scrambling to save its season, as commissioner Rob Manfred alluded to Friday in his conversations with union head Tony Clark.

How soon could MLB pull the plug on its doomed 2020 season? According to Keith Olbermann of ESPN, a decision to halt play could come as soon as Monday. Per Olbermann, networks broadcasting MLB games were alerted Friday to begin looking for alternate programming in the event of a shutdown.

This is a developing story.
