The Dodgers and Twins were supposed to be playing the first game of a two-game set this afternoon. Andrew Heaney is set to make his debut for Los Angeles, getting his first start of the early season. He is supposed to face off against Minnesota’s Chris Archer, who pitched in just 6 big league games for the Rays last season.
But the rain was an issue even before the team plane touched down in Minnesota. The Dodgers anticipated issues with the weather, suggesting that Clayton Kershaw’s start could be pushed back to the home opener on Thursday evening. It appears that could still be the case depending on how tonight plays out.
Tuesday night’s game in Minnesota has yet to be officially rained out. Dave Roberts said before the game that they expected a window from 5 PM to 9 PM Central Time where the rain would ease up. That could potentially allow them to get enough inning in to make the game official.
If they are unable to get a game in, the Dodgers and Twins would likely play a doubleheader on Wednesday. That’s very bad timing as Wednesday is also a getaway day for them. They head back to Los Angeles to play their home opener on Thursday night.
