MLB | Weather Spotlight | 8/18/17

We have a slew of weather issues for the Friday night slate. A few of the bigger games will be impacted. 

For updated weather information, follow us on Twitter @dfinsider and @Nate_HH.

Impacted Games

Los Angeles Angels @ Baltimore Orioles, 7:05 pm – They are expecting lots of rain along the East Coast today. First, we’ll talk about BAL, where storms will move in this afternoon, but should be out by the evening. They will most likely delay this one to start, but they should play. Winds will blow out to center at 5-10 mph.

New York Yankees @ Boston Red Sox, 7:10 pm – It’s a different story in Boston, where rain is expected during the late afternoon and into the evening. There’s a chance the rain would be light enough for them to play, but this one doesn’t look good.

Miami Marlins @ New York Mets, 7:10 pm – Timing will be everything in New York too, as storms move in during the afternoon. They are forecast to clear out by 8pm, delaying the start. But if rain lingers a little longer than that, we could have a PPD on our hands. Stay tuned for updates.

Los Angeles Dodgers @ Detroit Tigers, 7:10 pm – Wind will be the story in Detroit, as gusts up to 15-20 mph will play a big role. Prevailing breeze will be out to left/slightly cross from right to left. This could greatly benefit some right-handed power bats.
