Major League Baseball announced Thursday multiple schedule changes and makeup games stemming from the Miami Marlins' and St. Louis Cardinals' recent COVID-19 outbreaks.

Twelve teams across MLB's east and central regions have had their schedules changed as a result of the outbreaks. Makeup games will be sprinkled throughout August and September, and all doubleheader games will be seven innings long.

Here's a look at the changes by region:

Central region

  • This week's home-and-home series between the Cardinals and Detroit Tigers will be made up in a pair of doubleheaders: one in Detroit on Aug. 13 and another on Sept. 10 in St. Louis.
  • Last weekend's Cardinals-Milwaukee Brewers series will be made up in doubleheaders at Miller Park on Sept 14 and 16, and at Busch Stadium on Sept. 25. Milwaukee will be the home team for Game 1 of the Sept. 25 twin bill in St. Louis.
  • The "Field of Dreams Game" between the Cardinals and Chicago White Sox on Aug. 13 in Dyersville, Iowa, has been canceled. The contest will be played at Guaranteed Rate Field on Aug. 14.
  • The Brewers-Chicago Cubs game on Aug. 13 will now start at 7:15 p.m. ET, replacing the "Field of Dreams Game" on national television.
  • The Brewers-Tigers contest on Sept. 9 in Detroit will be a day game.
