Weatherproof games: Reds-Brewers, Phillies-Diamondbacks

Wet weather is expected for the East Coast games on Monday. These three games are in greatest danger of rain delays and/or cancellations:

Rockies-Cubs have a 70 percent chance of rain from 1 p.m. to 9 p.m., and then chances increase to 80 percent after that.
Nationals-Pirates also looks like a serious rainout possibility, with thunderstorms all day on Monday with a 70 percent chance of rain from first pitch until about 10 p.m. ET, when the chances of rain will be more likely than not.
White Sox-Yankees will also see rain throughout the day with a 50 percent chance of scattered thunderstorms when first pitch is scheduled just after 7 p.m. ET.

Dodgers-Marlins will see plenty of rain in the afternoon, but is not likely to experience any rain delays with partly cloudy skies and low-80s temperatures at game time.
Blue-Jays Rangers will encounter scattered thunderstorms throughout the day, and there is a 40 percent chance of precipitation at game time, but that drops to 20 percent by 9 p.m. local time.

The other two games on Monday's slate should predictably be much drier, as A's-Angels and Braves-Padres have a measly 10 percent chance of rain.
