The Cleveland Guardians’ home game against the San Diego Padres on Tuesday was postponed due to inclement weather.

Instead, the Guardians and Padres will play a traditional doubleheader beginning at 1:10 p.m. ET on Wednesday to complete their scheduled two-game series.

Pitching plans for the doubleheader were not immediately known. On Tuesday, the Padres were expected to activate right-hander Mike Clevinger from the injured list to make his first start since Sept. 23, 2020. Clevinger spent four-plus years with Cleveland before an Aug. 31, 2020 trade sent him to San Diego.

The Guardians were scheduled to counter with right-hander Zach Plesac on Tuesday. Wednesday’s original pitching matchup would have pitted Padres rookie left-hander MacKenzie Gore against Guardians righty Cal Quantrill, who was acquired from San Diego as part of the Clevinger deal.

The Pittsburgh Pirates and host Detroit Tigers also saw their Tuesday game postponed due to weather. They will play a doubleheader Wednesday.
