CLEVELAND — The White Sox’ scheduled game against the Cleveland Guardians Tuesday night at Progressive Field has been postponed due to cold weather.
The game will be made up as part of a straight doubleheader Wednesday starting at 1:10 p.m. Chicago time.
It’s the second night in a row the Sox and Guardians have been postponed. Monday’s game was called off because of snow and cold weather. There was no precipitation in the area Tuesday but temperatures were in the upper 30s with 20-30 mph winds Tuesday afternoon. The expected high was 42 degrees with much colder wind chills.
“And the field was, in places you can tell, the grass is a little insecure and as it gets colder with the wind here, it’s going to get slippery as hell, it’s going to be a little dangerous,” Sox manager Tony La Russa said. “[Cleveland manager] Terry [Francona] and I both agreed, it’s not smart and the umpire agreed.”
Dallas Keuchel will oppose Cleveland’s Shane Bieber in Game 1 Wednesday. Jimmy Lambert starts for the Sox against Triston McKenzie in Game 2. In the final game of the series Thursday, Zach Plesac pitches for the Guardians against Dylan Cease.
Outfielder Adam Haseley will join the Sox from Triple-A Charlotte as the 29th man for the doubleheader.
