Tigers-Mets postponed, rescheduled for Thursday

Tuesday night’s game between the Detroit Tigers and host New York Mets was postponed because of rain and will be made up on Thursday at 1:10 p.m. ET.

The teams waited about two hours past the scheduled start time before the game was postponed on Tuesday. Both teams had a day off Thursday, and they aren’t scheduled to meet again this season aside from the current series.

Tuesday’s scheduled starters, right-handers Casey Mize for Detroit and Adrian Houser for the Mets, are now supposed to pitch on Wednesday night, weather permitting. Steady rain is expected for most of the day.

Mize will be making his first major league appearance in almost two years, having dealt with Tommy John surgery and back surgery since April 2022. He is 7-13 with a 4.29 ERA in his 39-game career.

Houser (8-5, 4.12 ERA in 2023) will make his Mets debut. He was acquired in December in a trade with the Milwaukee Brewers.
