SF Giants Postpone Games Following Positive COVID-19 Test

The team says in a statement, "MLB will announce additional information regarding the statud of our series with San Diego as soon as possible". The Giants said they will have no comment on the situation until Saturday.

The Padres and the Giants are scheduled to face each other at Oracle Park from September 25-27 in their final series of the season. They entered the day three games behind the Los Angeles Dodgers in the NL West.

The Giants are off Monday and are scheduled to play in Seattle on Tuesday and Wednesday.
