Tomorrow, the Lugnuts will host the Whitecaps for a doubleheader with first pitch at 1:05 p.m.

The Yankees and Tigers were rained out Saturday in what had been New York's only scheduled visit to Detroit this year.

There is rain in the forecast on Sunday, and Wayne County is under a winter storm advisory for possible ice, sleet and snow overnight.

This is already the fifth day (now six games) in the first 2+ weeks of the season that the Tigers have had games postponed due to weather. An April 4 postponement against the Kansas City Royals will be made up as part of a day-night doubleheader on April 20.

The multiple rainouts this weekend have also altered the Tigers' rotation for that upcoming series vs. Baltimore. It's now unclear when Liriano will make his next start.

If the teams are unable to play on Sunday, keep an eye on June 4 for a potential make-up date.
