MINNEAPOLIS -- The Twins saw their scheduled game on Sunday against the Mariners postponed due to wintry conditions and it will be made up on Monday, May 14 at 6:10 p.m. CT, on a mutual off-day for the two clubs.

The announcement was made roughly three hours before the scheduled first pitch of 1:10 p.m. CT. Sunday's forecast called for a high of 32 degrees in the Minneapolis area with a chance of snow in the afternoon. Temperatures are expected to climb slightly toward 40 degrees for the Twins' series opener against the Astros on Monday at Target Field. The Mariners will move on to Kansas City to open a series with the Royals on Monday.

Temperatures are expected to climb slightly toward 40 degrees for the Twins' series opener against the Astros on Monday at Target Field. The Mariners will move on to Kansas City to open a series with the Royals on Monday.

The Twins will shuffle their starting rotation as a result, with right-hander Lance Lynn getting pushed back from his scheduled start on Sunday to start the series opener against Houston. Right-hander Jake Odorizzi is slated to start on Tuesday and he'll be followed by right-hander Kyle Gibson on Wednesday.

Thursday's starter against the White Sox has yet to be announced, as it's the first time the club will need a fifth starter this season, but it could be right-hander Phil Hughes who threw five innings with Class A Advanced Fort Myers on Thursday.

Fans who purchased tickets for Sunday's game may either use them to get into the makeup game on May 14 or exchange them for any other Twins home regular season game in 2018. Unused tickets may be exchanged at the Target Field Ticket Office.
