Lewis Thorpe makes season debut as Twins open series against Angels

ANAHEIM, Calif. — Manager Rocco Baldelli said the Twins are dealing with more COVID-19 related issues in the team's clubhouse in advance of tonight's game here against the Angels.

Shortstop Andrelton Simmons isn't on the trip because he has COVID-19, but the rest of the team cleared protocols yesterday before flying to California.

The issue apparently doesn't involve players, and the game will go on as scheduled.

Lewis Thorpe will make his first appearance of the season for the Twins, starting against the Angels (8:30 p.m., BSN-Plus).

Byron Buxton (hamstring) remains out of the Twins lineup, but Josh Donaldson is back at third base tonight.

The standout defender played in only two games last season.
