The Chicago Cubs saw their Tuesday night game postponed until 12:05 p.m. CST Wednesday for a day-night doubleheader against the New York Yankees.
The Cubs still made headlines despite the rain out as they hired former outfielder Darnell McDonald as a baseball operations assistant. According to reports, he will work with minor league players on and off field, evaluate amateur players for the draft and visit the major league team.
Around the league, the Houston Astros are calling up top prospect George Springer, Red Sox’s manager John Farrell is getting fined for being critical of instant replay, and across town the White Sox picked up a win on a rare ninth inning throwing error over Boston.
