The Mets’ series finale against the Braves has been postponed this evening, the second of three games in the series that was postponed by rain. And makeup dates for both of these postponed games have been announced, with the Mets and Braves playing doubleheaders on June 21 as part of a series that was originally scheduled to be three games and July 26 series that was originally scheduled for four games.

As the Mets await the return of many of their regulars, every postponed game these days has a bit if a silver lining. The team now travels to Arizona for a three-game series before heading to San Diego for a four-game series against the Padres, an off day, and two games in Baltimore.

Jacob deGrom was scheduled to pitch against the Braves tonight and will now start the series opener in Arizona instead, and the Mets are planning to have David Peterson pitch the second game and Marcus Stroman pitch the third game.
