Braves and White Sox postponed because of rain and snow, rescheduled for June 27

CHICAGO (AP) — The Atlanta Braves and Chicago White Sox had their game postponed Wednesday because of a forecast of persistent rain and snow.

The game was rescheduled for June 27, when the Braves had been scheduled off following a trip that end with a night game in St. Louis and before a homestand opening the following night against Pittsburgh. Chicago had an off day in the middle of a homestand that starts against the Los Angeles Dodgers and ends against Colorado.

Atlanta’s Spencer Strider had been scheduled to face fellow right-hander Dominic Leone, a reliever intended to be used as an opener for the homestand finale.


White Sox: The club hoped to get DH Eloy Jiménez (left adductor soreness) into more intense drills Wednesday. He has missed two straight games after leaving Sunday’s loss to Detroit.


Braves: LHP Max Fried (0-0, 40.50 ERA) is scheduled to start against Arizona LHP Tommy Henry (0-1, 11.25) in Friday night's home opener.

White Sox: RHP Michael Soroka (0-0, 7.20) faces RHP Seth Lugo (0-0, 0.00) to start a series at Kansas City on Thursday night.
