Earlier today the Yankees postponed their afternoon tilt due to snow and cold temperatures. Now, a few hours later, the Mets have announced they have postponed their home game against the Phillies which was to begin, well, a few hours later. The game will be made up in a July 9 doubleheader.

In the meantime, between yesterday’s off day and today’s snow-out, Gabe Kapler’s relievers will be totally rested and will be able to be fully deployed in any way Kapler desires in their next contest.

That’s, um, good, right?

Houston’s Yordan Alvarez leaves game with ankle discomfort

HOUSTON — Houston slugger Yordan Alvarez left the Astros’ game against the Arizona Diamondbacks in the fifth inning with left ankle discomfort.

Alvarez, who is tied for second in the American League with 37 home runs, rolled his ankle running out of the box on a single in the first inning.

He looked to be in some pain as he jogged to first base and was checked on briefly by manager Dusty Baker and a trainer before remaining in the game. Serving as the designated hitter, he struck out in the third inning before being replaced by pinch-hitter David Hensley for his at-bat in the fifth.
