KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- The White Sox game against the Kansas City Royals has been postponed because of rain and cold weather. The game will be made up Monday at 1:10 p.m.
Monday was an off day for both teams. The Sox play in New York Tuesday and Wednesday.
While the Sox might not be happy about missing an off day in New York, pushing their rotation back allows them to avoid using reliever Deunte Heath in a starting role on Saturday. Dylan Axelrod, who was scheduled to pitch Friday, will pitch Saturday. Jose Quintana will likely pitch Sunday and Jake Peavy will go Monday if he is recovered from the back issue that kept him off his scheduled start Thursday in Texas.
The Sox won two of three games from the Rangers in Arlington, Texas, to open their eight-game road trip.
