NEW YORK — The White Sox’ scheduled game against the New York Yankees Friday night has been postponed due to a forecast of sustained inclement weather in the area.
The game will be made up as part of a doubleheader Sunday starting at 2:05 p.m. CT. The two teams were scheduled to play Sunday at 6:08 p.m.
The two teams play Saturday at 12:05 p.m. CT.
Dallas Keuchel, slated to start for the Sox Friday night, will start Saturday. Johnny Cueto will pitch the first game Sunday and Michael Kopech will start the nightcap.
Earlier Friday, the Sox optioned right-handed reliever Ryan Burr to Triple-A Charlotte and returned Kopech from the paternity list.
Kopech is 0-1 with a 1.54 ERA and 33 strikeouts in seven starts over 35 innings this season. He went on the Paternity List Tuesday.
Burr (6.00 ERA) allowed six earned runs over nine innings in eight appearances this season. He owns a 4.08 ERA over 66 appearances including two starts during parts of four seasons with the Sox.
Johnny Cueto was the probable starter Saturday. Kopech was originally penciled in for Saturday but because of uncertainty over his return, he was tentatively moved to Sunday’s game, which will be broadcast on ESPN.
The Sox (19-19) lost three of four to the Yankees last week at Guaranteed Rate Field.
