Saturday’s game between the Los Angeles Angels and Minnesota Twins in Anaheim was postponed due to a positive COVID-19 test.
The Twins had a player test positive for COVID-19. The game was postponed to allow for more testing and contact tracing.
Tonight’s scheduled game between the Angels and #MNTwins at Angel Stadium has been postponed to allow for continued testing and contact tracing involving members of the Twins organization. Major League Baseball will continue to provide updates as available.

The Twins had false positive tests involving manager Rocco Baldelli and another employee a few days ago. It’s unclear at this point whether this is a false positive as well.
Twins players were able to get vaccinated nine days ago, although medical officials have said it takes two weeks for immunization to take effect. Twins shortstop Andrelton Simmons is already out due to COVID-19.
