ANAHEIM, CALIF. – Major League Baseball has postponed a third consecutive Twins game. The league announced Sunday that the Twins game at Oakland on Monday will not go on, and that a doubleheader at Oakland Coliseum possibly will be played Tuesday. That doubleheader would be a traditional one beginning at 5:30 p.m.
The Twins completed only one game at Anaheim, a 10-3 loss Friday, before COVID-19 issues ended the three-game series early. Shortstop Andrelton Simmons tested positive before the team went to California on Thursday. A staff member tested positive on Friday. And two players, including outfielder Kyle Garlick, tested positive ahead of Saturday's called-off game.
The team is hunkered at its hotel, hoping more tests done Sunday morning don't reveal any more cases. That would allow the team to fly to Oakland on Monday. Those results aren't expected until late Sunday.
This is a breaking news story and will be updated.
