Monday’s Game First Rainout of the Season 

Smith Transactions

Major League Baseball declared Monday’s contest between the San Diego Padres and Cleveland Indians to officially be a rainout with the game to be made up in a double header between the two teams on Wednesday.

The first game will start at 9:00am Pacific Time with LHP Eric Stults (0-1, 11.25 ERA) taking the hill for the Padres. The start time for the second game will depend upon when the first game finishes, but LHP Robbie Erlin (3-3, 4.12 ERA last season) is pegged to start that game.

RHP Tyson Ross (0-1, 5.40 ERA) was set to pitch today but will gain an extra day of rest and start Tuesday’s game which is slated for a 4:05pm Pacific Time start.

Because of the double header, the Padres will be allow to add a 26th player to the current active roster for Wednesday. Bud Black will most likely call up a pitcher from the Triple-A El Paso Chihuahuas, but the finality of the move has yet to be determined. More information will be posted as updates come.

Are you sad about the Padres rainout? Don’t be, because Padres Minor League All-Star and very own #AntiHero Cody Decker has put together a video of what ball players do during long rain delays and rainouts:
