ARLINGTON, TEXAS — With a lengthy, powerful storm beginning early Sunday morning in Texas, the Rangers moved quickly to postpone Sunday's series finale with the Orioles at Globe Life Park.
The game will be made up on a common off-day, June 20, creating a one-day road trip and eliminating one of the Orioles' four off-days between June 13 and June 27. The make-up game falls between Orioles home games with the Toronto Blue Jays and San Diego Padres.
That week could also see the Orioles' first postponement from last Saturday with the Tampa Bay Rays made up.
Both the Rangers and Orioles have no game Monday, but with the forecast calling for rain through the middle of the week in Texas and the Rangers not having had an off day yet this season, they opted for the June date.
Sunday's postponement creates yet another delay for scheduled starting pitcher Mike Wright, who has now started just once through the first two weeks of the season. Wright had his season debut postponed by winter weather last Saturday after he already warmed up, then made his first start of 2016 Tuesday.
The team announced Sunday afternoon that Wright will start Tuesday against the Toronto Blue Jays, with Ubaldo Jimenez and Chris Tillman following on six days rest apiece.
