With a snowstorm (!?!) sweeping through New England, tonight’sgame was postponed, to be made up on Sunday as a day-night, seven-inning, doubleheader.
Today’s game has been postponed due to weather. The game will be made up as part of a split doubleheader on April 18:
- Game 1 will be the originally scheduled which will take place at 1:10 p.m. ET
- Game 2 will be the rescheduled game from today which is at 5:10 p.m. ET— Chicago White Sox (@whitesox)
This is a funny way to gift White Sox fans with not having to see Reynaldo López start another game, Mother Nature.

NHL roundup: Avs top Blues, run point streak to 13 gamesBrandon Saad also scored for Colorado, Gabriel Landeskog recorded two assists and Jonas Johansson stopped 25 shots for his first win this season -- the second of his career. The Avalanche are amid an 11-0-2 stretch and closing in on the club-record point streak of 16 games, set in 2000-01.
No starter for Friday had been announced, but with Dallas Keuchel throwing on Saturday and Lucas Giolito for the opener Sunday, it was likely that a fresh arm would be needed — all indications, López. Now, the South Siders get to punt the decision for a couple of days.
With the pen usage (both Garrett Crochet and Michael Kopech) on Thursday, it would have been almost impossible to treat Friday as a bullpen game. While there is still a hole in the rotation for Sunday’s nightcap, the delay makes it at least plausible that Dylan Cease may be able to come back to start. Given it’s a seven-inning game, with the possibility of a complete game or minimal reliever need in the opener, a bullpen game is not implausible on Sunday, either.
López is probably the third-best option for Sunday, now, and that’s not a bad thing.
