CLEVELAND — The heavy rains throughout Northeast Ohio have caused the Cleveland Indians to postpone tonight's game with the Chicago White Sox at Progressive Field. 

The game will be rescheduled as a traditional doubleheader on Tuesday (July 28), with the makeup game starting at 3:30 p.m.  

The originally scheduled Tuesday night game will follow the first game after an approximately 45 minute break. Both games will be televised on SportsTime Ohio and broadcast on WTAM and the Indians Radio Network. WMMS will join in to simulcast at 7:00pm.   

The postponement of tonight's game comes after the White Sox announced that manager Ricky Renteria underwent testing for COVID-19. Renteria woke up with a slight cough and nasal congestion and was not set to manage Monday night's game. In a statement, the Whie Sox said "out of an abundance of caution," Renteria was staying at the team hotel and awaiting confirmation of the test result. 

Meanwhile, 14 members of the Miami Marlins organization have tested positive for COVID-19, forcing postponement of tonight's game against the Baltimore Orioles. The Marlins were in Philadelphia over the weekend.

Concerns about the safety of the Phillies' visiting clubhouse has caused tonight's game with the Yankees at Citizens Bank Park to be postponed as well.
