The Blue Jays had their opportunity to earn a series split with the Angels washed out as Sunday’s finale was postponed due to rain at TD Ballpark in Dunedin, Fla. The game will be made up as part of a split doubleheader on Tuesday, Aug. 10, in Anaheim at Angel Stadium.
Game 1 will be the rescheduled game from Sunday’s game in Dunedin, Fla., which will take place at 6:07 p.m. ET. The Blue Jays will be the home team for this game. Game 2 will be the originally scheduled game, which has been moved to 10:07 p.m. ET. The Angels will be the home team for this game.
Those who purchased tickets for Sunday’s postponed game through the Blue Jays will be automatically refunded to the original payment method; a credit should appear in as soon as 30 days. Those tickets will not be valid in Anaheim for either game of the doubleheader.
Right-hander Tanner Roark (0-1, 15.00 ERA), who was scheduled to be Toronto's starter on Sunday, will now be moved to the bullpen.
“That’s not to say he won’t start again, but for now that’s the way that we’re going,” manager Charlie Montoyo said.
Left-hander Robbie Ray will return from the injured list to start Monday’s series opener against the Yankees (7:07 p.m. ET first pitch), followed by lefty Hyun Jin Ryu (Tuesday) and righty Ross Stripling (Wednesday).
Rain showers had threatened to prevent the Blue Jays and Angels from playing on Saturday, but the teams waited out a two-hour-and-40-minute rain delay. Toronto cruised to a 15-1 victory, which wrapped up a few minutes after 1 a.m. ET.
Now, the Blue Jays look ahead to a three-game set against the Yankees, who dropped two of three against Toronto in the Bronx to open the season.
