The Chicago White Sox announced on Saturday morning that their game against the Kansas City Royals has been postponed due to inclement weather. First pitch had been scheduled for 2:10 p.m. ET. According to the White Sox, the game will be made up on May 14 as part of a split doubleheader.

During the shortened 2020 season, the MLB changed the rules when it comes to teams playing doubleheaders. Teams will play two seven-inning contests, instead of back-to-back nine-inning games. For Saturday afternoon’s game, the Royals were scheduled to have Mike Minor on the mound, while the White Sox were rolling out Dylan Cease.

The postponement will impact fantasy baseball managers and DFS players. Sidelined players include White Sox designated hitter Yermin Mercedes, first baseman Jose Abreu, second baseman Nick Madrigal, and Royals catcher Salvador Perez and super utility player Whit Merrifield. Mercedes has been one the hottest names in the fantasy realm with a .556 batting average, two home runs and seven RBI.
