KANSAS CITY, Mo. — The regularly scheduled game between the Cincinnati Reds and the Kansas City Royals Tuesday night at Kauffman Stadium has been postponed.

Over the weekend, a Reds player tested positive for COVID-19, leading to the postponement of the team’s Saturday and Sunday games against the Pittsburgh Pirates.

The Reds were scheduled to travel to Kansas City on Monday but pushed that flight back to Tuesday.

Despite the team arriving in Kansas City on Tuesday, the teams and leagues have canceled Tuesday’s game out of an abundance of caution.

The two teams are tentatively set to play a doubleheader on Wednesday.
