The MLB and MLBPA have agreed to have the playoffs in a bubble; Ken Rosenthal reported Tuesday morning.

After the 2020 season was initially in jeopardy, it eventually got underway, but not without a few bumps along the way.

60% of the Miami Marlins contracted COVID-19 within a week of the season starting. Despite fears of the season shutting down, it continued, and all seems to be well now. With the league experiencing a few COVID positive tests, it has made efforts to bring down the numbers.

As reported by Ken Rosenthal this morning, though, it doesn’t seem like the league wants to take any chances.

The MLB has secured two bubbles for the 2020 postseason; one for the AL, and one for the NL.

The NL’s bubble will be in Los Angeles and San Diego. The AL’s bubble will be in Texas and Houston.

The 2020 postseason is scheduled to begin September 29th.
