NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) – Major League Baseball cleared the Mets to resume baseball activities Monday after the team missed four games because two members of the organization tested positive for COVID-19 last week.

The positive tests postponed the final game of the team’s series in Miami as well as the three-game Subway Series over the weekend.
