Returning too quickly is no doubt a fear. Multiple days off is bad for players. Their routines are sacrosanct — especially pitchers’. And with the rash of arm injuries we’ve seen already this season, pitchers who have been on the sideline are already extraordinarily wary.
All in all: If Cards’ spread is contained, the season almost certainly will continue. If it worsens, there is concern. As it stands, Marlins could play Baltimore (probably Wednesday with weather expected Tuesday) and Phils should return next week, too. St. Louis is the question.
