Tonight’s game between the Mets and the Marlins has been postponed due to rain in the forecast. After pushing Jacob deGrom back a day because of weather concerns yesterday, bad weather in New York persists into today, adding Mother Nature to the growing list of factors stacked against deGrom’s Cy Young campaign.
The Mets and Marlins will now play a single-admission doubleheader on Wednesday, beginning at 4:10 p.m. Fans with a paid ticket for tonight’s game cannot use that ticket for Wednesday’s doubleheader, but can exchange that ticket for another game.
The Mets have announced that deGrom will pitch tomorrow, with Zack Wheeler pitching Game 1 of Wednesday’s doubleheader and Jason Vargas pitching Game 2. Noah Syndergaard will pitch the series opener on Friday in Boston and deGrom will match up against Chris Sale on Sunday. The Mets have not announced a starting pitcher for Saturday’s game; it will presumably be Corey Oswalt or some other form of makeshift bullpen game.
This all comes as weather-related postponements are up across baseball and wreaking havoc—the latest being the Nationals-Cubs fiasco of a series over the weekend. There is more rain in the forecast in Flushing in the coming week, including on Wednesday. The Marlins do come to Citi Field one more time this season on the final weekend of the schedule, September 28-30.
