The New York Yankees postponed their second consecutive game against the Texas Rangers on Saturday due to inclement weather. The forecast showed consistent rain in the area, but things are starting to clear up on Sunday. The Yankees will enjoy a few well-deserved days off, which is a benefit at the very least.

The Yankees have been dominant over the past few weeks, winning 11 of their last 12 games before falling to the Toronto Blue Jays in the series finale several days ago. Hopefully, this break doesn’t disrupt their flow and confidence. With Gerrit Cole missing his start on Friday and Luis Severino the same today, the Yankees will probably reset the rotation and have Cole feature on Sunday in the first doubleheader game.

Per the New York Yankees PR team:

The New York Yankees announced that today’s Yankees-Rangers game (Saturday, May 7) has been rescheduled due to the forecast of sustained inclement weather.

The game will be played on Monday, May 9 at 1:05 p.m. at Yankee Stadium.

The Yankees will play a doubleheader on Sunday starting at 1:35 PM, and the series finale will be on Monday. It will be a condensed schedule for the Bombers, especially since they host Toronto on Tuesday and Wednesday in a two-game series, but a few days off will hopefully give them the necessary rest to push through 31 straight games before their next break on June 6.
