Washington Nationals vs. Miami Marlins Postponed on May 27


The Washington Nationals and Miami Marlins were rained out at Nationals Park on May 27, as heavy thunderstorms with no signs of clearing prohibited the two teams from playing.

No make up date has been announced, though the Marlins will next come to Nationals Park from September 26-28.

Adam Kilgore of the Washington Post highlights how manager Matt Williams will handle his rotation:

For now, the Nationals skipped Tuesday’s scheduled starter Blake Treinen and will start Jordan Zimmermann as Wednesday’s scheduled starter. The Nationals will keep the rest of their rotation on track, and Treinen will pitch out of the bullpen until he makes his next start.

Kilgore notes that the Marlins will simply keep Henderson Alvarez, Tuesday’s scheduled starter, on track for Wednesday.

The thought of playing this game late in September during the last regular-season series of the year could have negative implications for both teams. If either is in the hunt for the playoffs, playing a doubleheader during the final series of the year could get the pitching staffs out of sync. That’s the last thing either manager would want.
