Yankees-Tigers delayed

DETROIT -- The previously scheduled first pitch is still 35 minutes away and the skies above Comerica Park have brightened somewhat, but tonight's Yankees-Tigers game will not start at its original 7:08 time, and there is no estimated start time yet, either.

The forecast calls for a 90 percent chance of rain through 10 p.m., but since this is the last -- and only -- trip to Detroit all season for the Yankees, buckle in for a long wait. Otherwise, tomorrow would probably be a day/night doubleheader.

Stay tuned for more updates.
