The Cleveland Guardians' game against the Chicago White Sox scheduled for Wednesday was postponed because of multiple positive COVID-19 tests within the organization.

The game was postponed to allow for continued testing and contact tracing. 

It was announced earlier Wednesday that Cleveland manager Terry Francona tested positive for COVID-19 and would be sidelined indefinitely.

The game was postponed because of multiple positive tests among the coaches and traveling party, according to sources.

It's the first game postponed this season because of COVID-19 after the league postponed nine of 2,429 games last season.

Forty-five games out of 900 were postponed because of COVID-19 during the shortened 2020 season.
