The Marlins have clarity on where they will play next. Now they are awaiting clearance to get back on the road.

MLB on Saturday afternoon released a revised schedule for the Marlins, Phillies, Brewers and Cardinals, four teams that have had games postponed due to the coronavirus.

Under the new schedule, the Marlins will resume their schedule in Baltimore on Tuesday in the first of four games to be played over three days (Aug. 4-6).

In a statement, the league announced that for two of the games in Baltimore, Miami will serve as the home team. A doubleheader will be played on one day of the scheduled series.

The Marlins were originally scheduled to face the Phillies on those dates at Marlins Park, but as MLB is navigating through these unprecedented times, the schedule remains flexible.

Now that there has been an updated schedule, the Marlins can make plans to head to Baltimore as they wait for MLB to give the go-ahead to travel.

On Saturday, MLB reported that the Marlins had no new positive test results in Friday’s COVID-19 collections. As an organization the Marlins have 21 positive cases, with 18 believed to be players.

Those infected were sent back to Miami on Friday on sleeper buses. The Marlins have been quarantining at their Philadelphia hotel, where they arrived on July 23. The team has not played since Sunday; those in the team’s player pool have continued to work out at the Marlins’ alternative training site in Jupiter, Fla.

On Saturday, however, the organization -- like the rest of South Florida, and much of the eastern coast of the state -- has been monitoring Hurricane Isaias, which projects to affect the state.
