Games between the Los Angeles Angels and Minnesota Twins scheduled for Saturday and Sunday at Angel Stadium were postponed Saturday by Major League Baseball to allow for continued testing and contact tracing involving members of the Twins organization.

Outfielder Kyle Garlick and a second player along with a staff member have tested positive since the team arrived in Anaheim, Minnesota manager Rocco Baldelli said Saturday.

The postponement of Saturday’s game was announced at 4:46 p.m. Some fans were already in the stadium for the planned 6:07 p.m. game. The postponement of Sunday’s game was announced about an hour later.

A member of the Twins’ traveling party tested positive for COVID-19 before Minnesota’s 10-3 loss to the Angels on Friday night at Angel Stadium, Baldelli announced following the game.

Sunday’s game was the Twins’ last scheduled appearance at Angel Stadium this season. There was no immediate announcement about rescheduling the postponed games. One option is playing two doubleheaders when the Angels face the Twins in Minneapolis July 22-25.
