White Sox-Indians postponed, will be made up May 23

Sunday's White Sox-Indians game was postponed due to rain in the area and will be made up May 23 as part of a straight doubleheader. 

The first game of the doubleheader will begin at 4:10 p.m. on May 23 and the second game will begin at 7:10, or 30 minutes after the conclusion of the first game. 

Fans with tickets and parking coupons for Sunday's game must exchange them for tickets of equal or lesser value to a future game. Those with tickets to the May 23 game may attend both games of the doubleheader.

With the rainout, Jose Quintana (who was scheduled to start Sunday) will pitch Monday against the Minnesota Twins. The rest of the rotation will also be pushed a day back. 

The White Sox, Indians and umpires decided to postpone Sunday's game when they did so both starters -- Quintana and Josh Tomlin -- wouldn't begin warming up then not get to pitch. 

"You start getting the reports of what it’s going to be, there’s a chance you lose both starters," manager Robin Ventura said. "It was going to be steady rain all day long. There wasn’t really good reports. You take that into consideration and move on and I think it’s in May they come back so we’ll end up probably having a doubleheader then."

Jose Abreu has already begun mentoring Luis Robert

As the White Sox have added young Cuban stars in the making in Yoan Moncada and Luis Robert, Jose Abreu's long-term role on the team has shifted.

The 31-year-old first baseman has been looked at as something of a mentor for the two young Cubans. He seems to be delivering on that so far.

Abreu picked up Moncada from the airport when he first was called up to the White Sox last July. Now he's helping Robert in the batting cage.

The Cuban trio is expected to play a big part of the White Sox future in the coming years. 

Robert has already stated his goal of making it to the majors this year to join Abreu and Moncada, but that may be an overly ambitious goal. Either way, plenty of eyes will be on him throughout 2018 as he marches towards the White Sox roster and his Cuban teammates.
