The Bradenton doubleheader yesterday was canceled due to weather. The two games will not be made up due to the fact Daytona and Bradenton do not meet up again during the first half of the season. West Virginia had their game rained out last night. They will make up the game on the road next week. Altoona was also rained out. That game will be made up in August when the two teams meet again. Due to all the rainouts, there may be changes in the starters for today’s games so check back later for any updates. Two new teams are on the daily schedule as the Dominican Summer League season got under way Saturday. For a look at the players to watch on the DSL teams, check out our season preview here.
