Default Makeup date announced at a later time

Jake Peavy gets the start Saturday afternoon. All of the other White Sox starters move back one day in the rotation, with Gavin Floyd starting Sunday's series finale and Dylan Axelrod opening the Cleveland series Monday night at home.

This postponement is the sixth in the history of U.S. Cellular Field due to cold temperatures. The most recent postponement due to cold was on April 10, 2008, vs. the Twins.

Both teams have an off-day on Thursday, Aug. 8, before the Twins' three-game series that weekend in Chicago. If that was the makeup date selected, the Twins would play from July 30 to August 26 without an off-day, meaning it would be more likely that the two teams would play a weekend doubleheader and maintain Thursday's off-day.
