Monday's Twins-A's game PPD for COVID issues

Monday's game between the Twins and Athletics at Oakland Coliseum has been postponed as the Twins organization continues to conduct testing and contact tracing for COVID-19.

The game has been tentatively rescheduled as part of a doubleheader on Tuesday, with Game 1 scheduled for 6:30 p.m. ET.

The Twins' games against the Los Angeles Angels on Saturday night and Sunday were postponed due to Minnesota's COVID-19 problems, including at least four positive tests in the past week.

Kyle Garlick, another unnamed Twins player and a team staff member tested positive in the two days before the postponements against the Angels, manager Rocco Baldelli said Saturday. Shortstop Andrelton Simmons already hadn't made the trip to Anaheim after testing positive early in the week, and he hadn't been around the team since Tuesday.

The Twins made an organization-wide push for vaccination when they returned from spring training in Florida nearly three weeks ago. That push didn't include Simmons, who chose not to be vaccinated.

Baldelli said Saturday the team was "close to where we wanted to be, but not close enough," in regard to getting most of its employees vaccinated. He believes that about 80% of the team has received two doses of the vaccine, but many employees aren't outside the two-week window following the second dose to be considered fully vaccinated.

Garlick played in the Twins' 10-3 loss to the Angels on Friday night. The Twins aren't scheduled to visit Angel Stadium again this season, and the Angels play four games at Minnesota on July 22-25.

There have been six MLB games postponed this year because of the coronavirus, including a season-opening, three-game series between the Washington Nationals and New York Mets after Washington's coronavirus concerns.

There were 45 regular-season games postponed for virus-related reasons last year, but only two -- between the St. Louis Cardinals and Detroit Tigers -- were not made up.
