As if a full Saturday slate — across three countries, no less — and injuries to several big stars wasn’t enough to monitor, postponements due to weather yesterday have given us two doubleheaders as well. It’s a lot to keep track of and we could be seeing more rain today as well, so the daily MLB lineup report is here to make sure you’re updated to on who’s starting and who’s sitting.
