The games will be made up as a day-night doubleheader on June 4, a scheduled off day for both teams.

The mutual agreement on June 4th also happens to be the first day of the 2018 MLB June Amateur Draft, in which the Tigers hold the No. 1 overall pick. When they take the field on Tuesday, they will have had three full days off, a rarity in baseball's regular season. The Tigers were scheduled to be off, while the Yankees would have been traveling between games in Baltimore and Toronto.

The teams had originally moved Saturday's rained-out contest to Sunday night as part of a split doubleheader, but rain has continued to hit the Detroit area. Luis Severino was expected to toe the rubber for the Yankees against Francisco Liriano and the Tigers this afternoon. The first game is scheduled to kick off at 1:10 PM ET, the second at 7:10 PM. Rain-outs on March 29 and March 31 against the Pittsburgh Pirates have already been made up.
