Rainout/ postponed MLB games 2013 – List of doubleheaders and make up games




There is a shortage of information on the web regarding rainouts and postponed games in MLB.  Even when Major League Baseball announces a make-up date for a rainout, it is one game at a time, and there is no resource available for fantasy baseball players to find out when the doubleheaders or make up dates are.

Well, good news!  I have decided to dedicate this entire page to nothing except doubleheaders and make up dates for rainouts and postponed games in 2013.  I will attempt to follow a relatively easy format here by charting what days the make up games will be played, and then mention whether or not it is a doubleheader.

Doubleheaders and makeup games

June 19th – Los Angeles Dodgers at New York Yankees – doubleheader – make up from June 18th

June 27th – New York Mets at Colorado Rockies – single game – make up from April 17th

June 28th – Cleveland Indians at Chicago White Sox – doubleheader – make up from April 23rd

July 8th – Chicago Cubs at Chicago White Sox – single game – make up from May 28th

July 23rd – Cincinnati Reds at S.F. Giants – doubleheader – make up from July 4th

July 26th – New York Mets at Washington Nationals – doubleheader – make up from June 6th

July 29th – Tampa Bay Rays at Boston Red Sox – single game – make up from July 25th

July 30th – Milwaukee Brewers at Chicago Cubs – doubleheader – make up from April 10th

July 30th – St. Louis Cardinals at Pittsburgh Pirates – doubleheader – make up from April 16th

August 1st – Arizona Diamondbacks at Texas Rangers – make up from May 29th

August 9th – Minnesota Twins at Chicago White Sox – doubleheader – make up from April 19th

August 16th – Kansas City Royals at Detroit Tigers – doubleheader – make up from April 23rd

August 19th – New York Mets at Minnesota Twins –  single game – make up from April 14th

August 20th – Toronto Blue Jays at New York Yankees – doubleheader – make up from May 19th

August 26th – Tampa Bay Rays at Kansas City Royals – single game – make up from May 2nd

September 9th – Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim at Minnesota Twins – Single Game – Make up from April 17th

September 14th – Miami Marlins at New York Mets – doubleheader – make up from June 7th

September 23rd – Blue Jays at Chicago White Sox – single game – make up from June 12th

Rainout/ Postponed – No Make up date announced

Community contributions

For this to be a successful operation, it may require the assistance of the community.  In the event that I don’t have a makeup date listed, and you are aware of the date, please post it in the comments section below the article, along with your source so that we can verify.  A few of the sites that we will accept verification from are Yahoo, ESPN, and MLB.com.

Also, if a game has been rained out, and you want to know if a makeup date has been announced, please post a comment below.  I will answer after checking all available resources.

As the list of doubleheaders and makeup games for 2013 continues to grow, I will be sure to update the article to by deleting the games that have already been played, so that the information is kept fresh and relevant..

In the event that a game is rained out, and no makeup date has been announced, I will simply list the game that was rained out until we get official confirmation of the date of the doubleheader/ makeup game.  If there is a suspended game, more often than not it won’t need to be listed as they will complete the game the following day.  If a suspended game is planned to be completed on a future date, then it will be listed, but that will be rare.

Thanks for reading, and while you are on the site be sure to register for an account so you can join the fantasy talk in the forums.  We will be discussing fantasy baseball throughout 2013, and whether you agree or disagree the discussions are always engaging

    Thanks for the website! This is awesome!
    Question…in fantasty will the postponed game (CWS vs KC) points count for this week (April 29-May 5) or will it count for next week (May 6-May 11)? I keep finding different answers online. Please help.

    • __KJ__

      May 5, 2013 at 22:49

      Unless you play in a very unusual format, the points will count for next week (May 6-May 11). Since it is a new game, it counts when it is played.

  14. Justin

    May 6, 2013 at 19:45

    by the way, the Mets @ Col were also rained out on April 15 and made it up as a DH on April 16. You have the April 17 rain out listed already though

    thanks so much for this service. Tho we play mostly for bragging rights, it’s fun to try and stake out a little edge; and how frustrating is it in daily play to sit a front-line player thinking it is an off day, only to find out too late a makeup game is being played. Greatly appreciate….Gene

    • __KJ__

      May 16, 2013 at 16:36

      You got it Gene, I was never able to find makeup game info online, and the community has been a great help in pulling all these dates together

    The TOR @ NYY game from 5/19 is not listed under either Rescheduled or No Makeup Date Announced sections.

    BTW… Appreciate the effort putting this info together.

    • __KJ__

      May 27, 2013 at 09:10

      Wow, thanks, can’t believe I missed one! Going through the schedule it doesn’t look like a makeup date has been announced, but the most likely timeframe is August 20th-22nd when the Blue Jays head back to New York.

      Will keep an eye on it. Thanks Joe

    What about the July 4th game between Reds and Giants? Nothing has been made official yet, but I read it could be at a neutral site, part of a double header at SF, or at the end of the season.

    • __KJ__

      July 9, 2013 at 06:30

      Thanks Brandon, I checked it out, and no makeup has been announced yet.

    Just curious. Does anybody know how many days on average a year in which at least 1 rainout happens? Baseball season is roughly 180 days, you think a rainout happens roughly 20-25 days out of the baseball season. I don’t mean total rainouts (not two on the same day) but days in which a rainout happens? Just curious if anybody has the info……Thanks!

  34. Steve

    What determines whether or not MLB games are made up? The Red Sox have 3 postponed games with the
    royals, Rays and Angels but they do not play the Angels again this year. Does standings have anything to do with it?

    • __KJ__

      July 10, 2013 at 12:13

      Whenever possible MLB attempts to make up a game, and if they don’t play again, they try to make it up when the team is “in the neighborhood”. Sometimes, the game won’t be made up if it the teams are too far out of it, but this is rare.

    Philles and White Sox July 12 game rained out. MAde up with a Double HEader Saturday July 13.

    BTW…ESPN had a list of it. It was there until a few days ago. Not sure why, but it seems they deleted it. I’m sure they still have it somewhere, but I haven’t found it yet. I have been using that all year. That’s how I found your site actually. I was looking for another place to get it from since that was gone.


    Guess keep checking, or look around ESPN more. I can’t see why they would have stopped doing it. Just happened in the last week.

      Wow good to know. I was probably typing in the wrong search term all these years when looking for makeup games.
