Oakland, California. – The Minnesota-Oakland Athletics match scheduled for the Coliseum on Monday night has been postponed due to Twins’ ongoing COVID-19 issues.
Major League Baseball announced on Sunday that delays could allow continued virus testing and contact tracing. According to MLB, Twins and A are planning a straight doubleheader as a make-up on Tuesday.
The Twins-Los Angeles Angels match in Anaheim has been postponed to Saturday and Sunday.
Twins have tested positive for at least four coronavirus tests in the past week.
Rocco Baldelli said this weekend another unnamed Twins player and team staff Kyle Garlick tested positive two days before the postponement of the Angels match. Shortstop Andrelton Simmons has not yet traveled to Anaheim after testing positive at the beginning of the week.
Garlic played Friday night when the Twins lost to the Angels 10-3. The Twins have no plans to visit Angel Stadium again this season, and the Angels will play four games in Minnesota from July 22nd to 25th.
After concerns about the Washington Coronavirus, there were six MLB games postponed this year due to the virus, including a three-game series that opened the season between the Nationals and Mets.
Last year there were 45 regular season matches that were postponed for virus-related reasons, but only two between St. Louis and Detroit weren’t composed.
