Major League Baseball executives expect spring training to be suspended after Thursday, according to SNY's Andy Martino.
Martino reports it's unclear what happens to players still, but an announcement is expected to be made Thursday afternoon to provide more clarity on the situation.
The Mets are set to play the Braves on Friday at 1:05 p.m. on the road.
With details about the coronavirus pandemic evolving every day, it is difficult to say if the Major League Baseball season will begin as scheduled on March 26, or if fans will be allowed to attend games, SNY's Andy Martino reported on Wednesday.
As of Wednesday, the Mets currently expected to proceed with Opening Day on March 26 and play all subsequent home games at Citi Field with fans in attendance -- unless told otherwise by MLB or government authorities, according to Martino.
With the spread of the coronavirus impacting daily life in the United States and around the globe, several governors and mayors have been putting protocols in place to limit large gatherings, including New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo who said they are not allowing large public gatherings of 500 or more in New York City.
