MLB | Weather Spotlight | 5/19/17

As we transition into the summer months, a pop-up shower or two will be possible in a lot of ballparks around the league. Instead of writing each one of those up in the Impacted Games section, we will simply use an asterisk to show games with a 20% or less chance of a delay. While that’s still not a 0% chance, the probability is low. Always check Twitter for a full update before lineups lock.
For updated weather information, follow us on Twitter @dfinsider and @Nate_HH.

Impacted Games

Toronto Blue Jays @ Baltimore Orioles, 7:05 pm – A couple of isolated showers are possible in the area, but nothing that should cause a PPD. Wind will blow FROM LEFT TO RIGHT across the field at 10-15 mph with temperatures in the mid to low 80s.

Colorado Rockies @ Cincinnati Reds, 7:10 pm – A better chance for showers and thunderstorms exists in Cincy tonight. The radar will be our friend today, as storms move in during the afternoon and last through the evening. We’ll let you know of any PPD risk. Wind won’t be a factor and temperatures will be in the mid 70s.

San Francisco Giants @ St. Louis Cardinals, 8:15 pm – There’s a chance for a few scattered showers and thunderstorms, but most of the stronger storms should hold off until after the game is done. We’ll call for a slight chance of a delay and give you an update closer to lock. Wind won’t be a factor and temperatures will sit in the upper 70s.
