Seventeen people on the Miami Marlins Major League Baseball team have reported positive cases of COVID-19, NBC Sports Boston reporter Trenni Kusnierek told Boston Public Radio on Tuesday.

"[The MLB] will have to come up with a punishment if [players] don't folllow guidelines, because if they derail an entire season because [a player] can't be bothered to wear a mask, that's going to cost the league millions, possibly billions of dollars, and there should be some ramifications for that," Kusnierek said.
