Monday’s Game First Rainout of the Season
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.
