The White Sox’ scheduled game against the Guardians Wednesday afternoon at Guaranteed Rate Field has been postponed due to multiple Guardians COVID-19 issues.
The announcement was made at 12:15 p.m., 55 minutes before the scheduled start. There were multiple positive tests results affecting the Guardians, most of them from the coaching staff and traveling party, including manager Terry Francona.
The postponement was made to allow for continued testing and contact tracing.
The Sox and Guardians split the first two games of the series. The game will be made up at a later date to be announced.
The Sox open a four-game series against the Yankees at Guaranteed Rate Field Thursday.
Vince Velasquez was the Sox’ scheduled starter.
