Possible rain issues in lots of games to keep an eye on as we get closer to lock…

Atlanta @ Pittsburgh — likely delay, possible PPD

Minnesota @ Cleveland — possible delay, but should play fine, pitchers seem fine

Giants @ New York Mets — some rain, should play fine, some risk with pitchers but should be OK

Baltimore @ Texas — Some isolated storms, possible delay, pitchers risky, bats fine

Cincinnati @ St. Louis — Possible storms late in the game means possible PPD in late innings, but I think it will play OK.
