Miami Marlins starting pitcher Jose Urena has tested positive for COVID-19, according to MLB Network’s Jon Heyman.

Urena has been a starter for Miami since 2015, having played in 137 career games and recording a 4.47 ERA, and 391 strikeouts. Urena was due to start in Sunday’s series finale against the Philadelphia Phillies before the positive test result.

Phillies’ Andrew McCutchen, who has not made the biggest impact in this series, is also out. It’s unknown if McCutchen is injured, but it’s to be believed that Andrew is recovering from his previously Torn ACL. Phil Gosselin, who hit a home run in Saturday’s game, is also out.

The Marlins have picked Robert Dugger to be Urena’s replacement for todays game and possibly the future. Dugger has played in seven major league games, having a 5.77 ERA with 25 Strikeouts. He faces off against Phillies’ Vince Velasquez, who has a career ERA of 4.67 with 569 Strikeouts in 122 games played.
