The rain never lifted over Baltimore, and, as a consequence, we're looking at an afternoon-evening doubleheader tomorrow, with Colby Lewis going in Game 1 at 3:05 p.m. CDT, and Derek Holland kicking off Game 2 somewhere around 7:00 p.m. CDT. This probably isn't an ideal outcome from an exhaustion standpoint, as the Rangers don't get their next off day until May 24th, and are currently slated to play four games during a 48-hour stretch spanning late Thursday afternoon through early Saturday afternoon, but it is what it is. The Rangers aren't slated to return to Baltimore this year, so this was more a case of now-or-never than the result of a conscious decision on both teams' parts.
Expect Scott Feldman to assume spot-starting duties during next Monday's series-opener vs. the Royals, because if the Rangers relied solely upon their starting five and eschewed bullpen aid, one of Lewis or Holland would have to go on three days' rest next Monday.
It's possible that things could become even more complicated over the next 48 hours from a scheduling standpoint, as an incoming storm system could conceivably rain out Friday night's series opener against the Angels (yeah, the much-anticipated Darvish/C.J. tilt). See, none of this would be happening if this team would spend some money and get a retractable roof up in here. *
