Sixteen games were played yesterday with nary a rainout. We’re back to 2018 normal today, however, as today’s game between the Cubs and Cardinals has been postponed due to inclement weather.
It’s supposed to be rainy and sleety with temperatures in the 30s and, my god, are we all sick of that. The game has been rescheduled for tomorrow, when Jon Lester will face off against Luke Weaver of the Cardinals.
Hang in there. Spring will eventually come. At least I think it will.
Alex Pavlovic of NBC Sports Bay Area reports that Giants pitcher Dereck Rodriguez has been placed on the 10-day disabled list with a Grade 1 strain of his hamstring. Rodriguez apparently suffered the injury during Tuesday’s altercation with the Dodgers which featured Yasiel Puig and Nick Hundley.
Rodriguez, 22, has been having an outstanding rookie season, posting a 2.25 ERA with a 65/19 K/BB ratio in 80 innings across 12 starts and two relief appearances.
Casey Kelly will start in Rodriguez’s place against the Reds on Friday.
