A’s manager Bob Melvin expects Monday’s Twins-A’s game to be postponed

Athletics manager Bob Melvin told reporters this afternoon it is his understanding tomorrow’s game between the Twins and Athletics will be postponed, via Betsy Helfand of the St. Paul Pioneer-Press. The hope is the two teams will be able to return to action on Tuesday, with a doubleheader to make up Monday’s game a possibility. There has not yet been an official announcement from MLB.

The Twins’ past two games against the Angels were postponed due to the spread of a COVID-19 variant among the Minnesota clubhouse. To date, three Minnesota players (including Andrelton Simmons and Kyle Garlick) and a staff member have tested positive. The Twins are continuing to monitor for further viral spread.

Minnesota and Oakland were originally scheduled for a three-game series from April 19-21. Both teams have a scheduled off day on Thursday.
