The rain forecast again affected the Chicago Cubs home schedule.
The Cubs game at 1:20 p.m. Friday against the Los Angeles Dodgers was postponed due to bad weather.
He was moved to 6:40 p.m. Saturday as the second game in the doubleheader section. The originally scheduled game that day was changed to 12:05 p.m., with 1:20 p.m. Gates opening approximately 90 minutes before the first inning of each game.
Individual tickets will be required to participate in the games.
The cubs have adjusted their starting teams for the Dodgers series due to rain.
Left-hander Drew Smiley, who was included in the list of victims on Tuesday, is expected to start the game on Saturday’s double header. Left-hander Daniel Norris will start Game 2, his first start on August 3, 2020, as part of the Detroit Tigers. Left-hander Justin Steele was originally scheduled to perform on Saturday. Right-hander Marcus Stroman gets the ball in a tent match against Walker Buhler’s right-hand man for ESPN’s “Sunday Night Baseball”.
Soon the rotation should get a boost. Left-hander Wade Miley threw four zero innings on Thursday of his rehab at Triple-A Iowa. Miley allowed two strikes without walks and three strikeouts on 41 pitches (28 strokes).
The departure was Miley’s first game action since the end of last season. Inflammation of the left elbow did not allow him to go to the Cactus League game during spring training.
The Cubs will need to assess how Miley is feeling after starting Thursday, but he may not need long-term rehabilitation before debuting in Cubs. The veteran is well aware of his hand and what he needs to be prepared for, so it will be interesting to see how much the Cubs want Miley to increase the number of her steps before activating him from the injured list.
