7/28 Game Thread 1: Indians vs. White Sox

Aaron Civale takes the mound in the afternoon matinee of a double-header

MLB: Detroit Tigers at Cleveland Indians Ken Blaze-USA TODAY Sports

If you were lamenting the lack of afternoon games in the abbreviated 60-game schedule, well you didn’t have to wait long before Mother Nature intervened to deliver what the league office could not. Due to last night’s game being postponed due to rain, Aaron Civale will make his season debut in a duel with the White Sox’s Dylan Cease in the first game of a doubleheader.

And in a follow-up to yesterday’s report that White Sox manager Rick Renteria was self-quarantining after waking up with “a slight cough and nasal congestion,” his COVID-19 test came back negative and he is expected to be back in the dugout for today’s games.
