Tuesday's weather in Denver also calls for rain, and should weather force another postponement, the teams likely would play a doubleheader Wednesday, and then still have to schedule a makeup game for June or September.

The D-backs will stay in rotation, with Monday's starter, Josh Collmenter, shifting to Tuesday. Robbie Ray, who was scheduled to be called up from Triple-A Reno to start Tuesday, will now start Wednesday.

"We're excited to see him pitch," D-backs manager Chip Hale said of Ray. "He'll pitch then, and then the next series with Washington."
