According to MLB commissioner Rob Manfred, the final announcement on whether the Miami Marlins vs. Pittsburgh Pirates games will be played in Puerto Rico will be made Monday, at the latest. The games are scheduled for May 30th and 31st in San Juan, Puerto Rico.

The main reason the games may be moved to Miami, who is the official home team for both games, is due to players on both teams expressing concerns on the Zika virus, which is spread mainly through mosquito bites.  The game was scheduled originally in Puerto Rico to honor Roberto Clemente day.
