CHICAGO — The White Sox have postponed their home opener against the Seattle Mariners a day in advance because of rain in the forecast.
Chicago pushed back the start of a three-game series against Seattle to Friday when the forecast calls for sunny skies and dry conditions with temperatures in the 50s.
Right-hander Reynaldo Lopez is scheduled to start for Chicago, with lefty Yusei Kikuchi pitching for the Mariners.
First pitch is scheduled for 11:10 a.m. PT.
This is the M’s first postponement of the season and the first postponement in Chicago since April 27, 2009.
