G20: Yankees at Red Sox, Postponed (Rain)

Update: Tonight's game has been postponed due to inclement weather.

The game will be played as part of a day-night doubleheader on Sunday, July 16.

Also: Pablo Sandoval was put on the 10-day disabled list with a right knee sprain. Josh Rutledge has been activated from the DL and added to the roster in his place.

As ESPN's Scott Lauber notes, Sandoval's injury "comes at a particularly inopportune time, considering shortstop Xander Bogaerts is playing with a sore left thumb, second baseman Dustin Pedroia has missed the past two games with a sore left ankle and left knee, and utility infielder Brock Holt is on the disabled list with vertigo".

Matt Barnes was suspended for four games for throwing a pitch near Manny Machado's head. He will appeal the decision.

ESPN's Buster Olney says the Red Sox bear 100% of the blame for this "colossally ridiculous and dangerous" situation:
You do wonder if somebody in the Red Sox clubhouse was spurred into action by outside forces: In at least one case, a reporter suggested that retaliation against Machado would be appropriate ...

On Monday, there was a lot of speculation around baseball that [Dustin] Pedroia might have to make amends with others wearing Red Sox uniforms after he criticized his team's actions.
Pedroia (left knee and ankle soreness) is day to day. Pablo Sandoval (right knee sprain) will have an MRI this afternoon.
