The New York Yankees were scheduled for a 7:00 PM start against the Atlanta Braves on Tuesday in a two-game series. However, nothing can seem to go right these days as the contest was postponed due to inclement weather. The Yankees will now face off against the Braves in a doubleheader starting at 4:10 PM on Wednesday.

The Yankees have three doubleheaders schedule this week, one against the Braves and two against New York Mets. The Yankees missed a four-game series against the Mets over the weekend due to positive COVID-19 tests. According to ESPN’s Jeff Passan, one player and one coach both contracted the virus, forcing the teams to reschedule their games.

For the Yankees, they reinstated star slugger Aaron Judge to the active roster, making him available for Tuesday’s game. However, he will now have to wait one more day to return to action.

8/26: Doubleheader at ATL

8/27: Off

8/28: Doubleheader vs. NYM

8/29: Single game vs. NYM
