    Atlanta Braves

    Start of NYM-ATL will be delayed due to rain Wednesday

    The start of the matchup between the New York Mets and Atlanta Braves on Wednesday evening will be delayed due to rain currently in the area. There’s yet to be any confirmation of an official start time, and the Braves have not yet committed to a specific timeline for providing further updates. The definitive late start is potentially better news for the prospects of starting pitchers like Dallas Keuchel not being pulled from the game early because of a mid-game stoppage, and as Kevin Roth detailed in the latest update to his MLB weather forecast, he believes this game should play through to conclusion following the initial weather delay.
