Pittsburgh at Cincinnati, ppd: It didn’t take long for the first postponement of the season, as the game never got going and will be made up as part of day-night doubleheader on May 27. So Sonny Gray’s debut as a Reds’ starter is being delayed a day.

Chicago Cubs at Texas: The Cubs’ Yu Darvish will be taking the mound for the first time since May 20 of last year. He only made eight starts due to arm problems. Darvish will be making his first start against his former team, the Rangers.
