Toronto Blue Jays slugger Vladimir Guerrero Jr. gave his team a 1-0 lead with a second-inning home run against the Washington Nationals Tuesday at Nationals Park in Washington D.C. 

Montoyo said the team plans to stay in the US capital until new travel plans can be finalized. "But that's all I know right now".

The Jays next series after the Phillies is scheduled to be vs.

Earlier in the day, the Phillies announced that all activity at Citizens Bank Park has been cancelled until further notice.

Tests conducted Wednesday returned a positive result for a member of the coaching staff and a member of the home clubhouse staff, the Phillies said. All players tested negative.

The Jays were originally scheduled to open the series in Philadelphia on Friday but Major League Baseball intervened and delayed that by a day to make sure Citizen's Bank Park was deemed safe.

The Phillies played the Miami Marlins last weekend in Philadelphia, and 17 Marlins have since been diagnosed with coronavirus.

The Jays were scheduled to take an approximately two-hour bus ride from Washington to Philadelphia following Thursday's game to prepare for the weekend series against the Phillies. The Toronto-Philadelphia series was originally set to begin Friday, but the opener was pushed back to Saturday afternoon.

Moving onto the Buffalo Bills part of this fun curve ball (pun intended), the Nationals made a decision to have some fun with the "Buffalo Blue Jays" ahead of the Blue Jays home game... at Nationals Park.

The Blue Jays - who finish off a two-game series in Washington on Thursday afternoon - had already been playing away from home the entire season after Canadian officials ruled they would not allow teams to travel to and from the United States. The team's "home" opener in Buffalo is slated for August 11.

Even though the Toronto Blue Jays are not scheduled to play their first home game in Buffalo until August 11th, their opponent wanted to "blend in" with the locals.

To this point, no players from any team other than the Marlins are known to have tested positive.
