Detroit Tigers vs. Yankees game postponed; makeup won't be easy



After hours of speculation, tonight's Detroit Tigers-New York Yankees game has been postponed due to inclement weather, the Tigers announced just after 4 p.m.

There has been a steady wintry mix falling all morning and afternoon in downtown Detroit, and that has caused the cancellation of what was scheduled to be a nationally televised game on ESPN's "Sunday Night Baseball," with the first pitch set for 8:10 p.m.

No makeup date has been announced at this time.

It was the Yankees’ only scheduled trip to Detroit, which makes for a scheduling snafu going forward. The teams only have six mutual off-days: April 18, May 2, June 2, July 28, Sept. 1 and Sept. 19.

All of those days carry travel complications, but the most likely makeup date, as reported by ESPN’s Marly Rivera, is July 28, when the Yankees have an off-day between road series against the Houston Astros and Tampa Bay Rays.

The Tigers are traveling between Houston and Kansas City on April 18. The two teams are in the middle of road trips on May 2, the Tigers are coming back from a lengthy California trip on June 2 and both teams have travel days on Sept. 1. They are both in the middle of road series on Sept. 19.

The early-season baseball schedule incorporates off-days to help straighten out the scheduling issues because of postponements, but New York’s off-day Monday doesn’t help because the Tigers start a four-game, home-and-home series against the Pittsburgh Pirates.

Justin Verlander, who was scheduled to start tonight, gets the start tomorrow at Comerica Park (1:10 p.m., FSD).

Here's how the rest of the rotation looks:
