Dave St. Peter: Twins Friday night game against Cleveland 'to be determined'


A source in the Minnesota Twins organization told WCCO Radio on Friday morning that the team will continue its schedule as normal despite reports that two St. Louis Cardinals players have tested positive for COVID-19. The Cardinals had just played the Twins in a two-game series on Tuesday and Wednesday.

"It's to be determined. We are prepared to play and we expect to play," Twins president Dave St. Peter told Chad Hartman on Friday afternoon. "Clearly, everybody in our industry is taking the health and safety protocols seriously."

St. Peter said Cleveland's players were scheduled to meet Friday afternoon to discuss the next steps.

"They'll certainly understand what's transpired around the visiting clubhouse in terms of the cleaning protocols, the staff, and some of those aspects which will be important in their decision," he said.
