A look at what's happening around the majors on Monday:


The Cincinnati Reds will wait for their latest COVID-19 test results to see when they can resume the season.

Cincinnati had home games against Pittsburgh postponed Saturday and Sunday after a player tested positive. The Reds expect the new results Monday, when Major League Baseball will decide whether they can travel to Kansas City for a series scheduled to begin Tuesday night.

The Pirates worked out at Great American Ball Park on Sunday, then returned to Pittsburgh.

Cincinnati is the third team to have games postponed because one of its players tested positive for COVID-19, joining the Marlins and the Cardinals.


The Yankees plan to activate Aroldis Chapman after the All-Star closer recovered from COVID-19. Chapman tested positive for the coronavirus during preseason workouts and hasn’t pitched yet this season.
