Friday's series opener between the Tampa Bay Rays and host Boston Red Sox was called off due to inclement weather in the Boston area.

With a doubleheader already scheduled for Saturday, the game was postponed till 4:05 p.m. on Monday, when both teams had a scheduled day off.

The Rays entered the series with the best record in baseball (40-18), while the Red Sox were last in the American League East despite being above .500 (29-27). The Rays swept a four-game series against the Red Sox at home in April.

Starting pitchers for Saturday's doubleheader were not yet announced. The Red Sox were set to start Garrett Whitlock (2-2, 5.14 ERA) on Friday opposite Tampa Bay's Tyler Glasnow (0-0, 6.23).

Also Friday, the Red Sox placed left-handed pitcher Chris Sale on the 15-day injured list due to left shoulder inflammation.
