Thursday night’s Opening Day matchup between the New York Mets and Washington Nationals has been postponed, reports ESPN’s Buster Olney. The Nationals were set to begin the season without multiple players because of a positive COVID-19 test and contact tracing. MLB has not yet announced the postponement.

Last season MLB typically postponed multiple games while sorting through COVID-19 issues, so it’s possible the Mets and Nationals will not play their season-opening series this week. Thursday’s game was to feature Opening Day’s top pitching matchup: Jacob deGrom vs. Max Scherzer.

CBS Sports will have more on this story shortly.
