St. Louis Cardinals president of baseball operations John Mozeliak is unsure what's next for the team after three more positive COVID-19 results came back Friday.

"I don't know what really our future looks like at this point," Mozeliak said, according to Derrick Goold of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch. "I know that we've lost these three games and we'll certainly take this day by day. For all the optimism we had a couple of days ago to be where we are today it's definitely frustrating for everybody involved.

"Now, we're just going to have to take it one day at a time and hopefully we get through this, we get back to playing baseball soon."

The team was scheduled to start a three-game series with the Chicago Cubs on Friday, but the contests were postponed. Players were also informed Saturday that the club will not be assembling for at least three-to-five days, a source told Mark Saxon of The Athletic, who adds that St. Louis' next series against the Pittsburgh Pirates will likely be canceled.

The Cardinals haven't played since July 29 due to an outbreak that is now up to 16. St. Louis could see more confirmed cases as the club gets the results of Friday's tests on Saturday, reports Goold.

"Experts who we consulted with gave us advice that we could take that next step forward," Mozeliak said. "I don't know what the right answer is. Is it two days? Is it five days? Is it 10 days? Or is it two weeks? The whole country, the whole world, is facing these same questions. We're just caught in the middle of it."
