Boston Red Sox president Sam Kennedy noted Friday the plan is to move missed games to the end of the regular season, although things could still change, per Bleacher Report's Scott Miller.
MLB announced Thursday that all spring training games would be canceled and the start of the regular season would be delayed at least two weeks amid concerns regarding the coronavirus pandemic.
According to CNN.com, COVID-19 has led to 47 deaths in the United States, and there are 2,033 confirmed cases in the U.S. as of Friday. More than 5,000 people have died worldwide.
"Nothing is more important to us than the health and safety of our players, employees and fans," the league said in a statement. "MLB will continue to undertake the precautions and best practices recommended by public health experts. We send our best wishes to all individuals and communities that have been impacted by coronavirus."
The 2020 season was scheduled to begin March 26, but games have been postponed through at least April 9.
According to Marly Rivera of ESPN, many players don't believe the season will begin until at least May.
Adding the missed games to the end of the schedule would push the playoffs deep into November.
