Major League Baseball announced the cancellation of the rest of spring training and the postponement of Opening Day for at least two weeks on Thursday due to the coronavirus. Depending on whether it is only for two weeks or longer, the schedule of the Colorado Rockies could be significantly altered.

The Colorado Rockies have an interesting schedule at the beginning of their 2020 season but with Major League Baseball delayed the start of the regular season for a minimum of two weeks, the Rockies could see some significant changes to their schedule.

This would, obviously, depend on whether or not it is just two weeks or not. If it ends up being just two weeks (which is hopefully the case), Major League Baseball could realistically just push back everything on the schedule two weeks.

The season could start in San Diego on April 9 and continue on from there. The All-Star break could, instead, be from July 27 through July 30, the trade deadline would be moved to August 14, the regular season would end on October 11, and the playoffs would likely end around Veteran’s Day (November 11). This scenario would only work if the season resumes on April 9, though.

MLB could decide just to scrap the first two weeks of games, as well. If that were the case, the Rockies would open the season in Arizona on Friday, April 10. A total of ten games would be scrapped for the Rockies.
