Toronto released a statement Tuesday morning:

"Following a thorough assessment of our roof conditions, we have determined that there is no material structural damage, no active leaks, and no further impediments to fan or player safety. As such, we will proceed with playing the traditional doubleheader as scheduled, beginning at 3:07 p.m. ET.

"All gates open at 1:30 p.m. and fans with tickets for today will have access to attend both games. The second game of the doubleheader will begin approximately 30 minutes following the conclusion of the first game."
