Paul Maholm, who was originally scheduled to start Wednesday, will now get extra time to rest and will start on Friday to open the Cubs' series against the Los Angeles Dodgers at Wrigley Field.
The game postponement also gives the Cubs' bullpen a chance to recover. Scott Maine has been sick, even though he was able to pitch on Monday. Rafael Dolis was unavailable Tuesday but will be ready to go Wednesday, Sveum said. Randy Wells will be available in the bullpen Wednesday, giving the Cubs eight available relievers, depending on how Maineis feeling.
Meanwhile, here's a fun photo from last night's Cubs-Phillies game:
