This wacky MLB DFS weather season would not be complete without an almost May Californian rainstorm! Meteorologically, this is an incredibly rare event. Winter storm warnings are up for the Sierra Nevada mountains!
SF, OAK and LAA are PPD threats to some extent. We only have to go back to last week when LAA PPD for rain that had occurred well before the game to see that the CA parks do not handle rain well. I would say all bets are off here as all three games are division opponents and easily made up. But, I do think the rain is spotty enough that all three games SHOULD play. Reality is though….all three games are not completely safe.
Elsewhere, tstorms will be found near WSH, PIT, CLE, KC, CHC, NYM and the night game in STL. In CHC, KC, STL and NYM the tstorms will be very widely scattered and I really do not expect an impact on the game. WSH and CLE will see pop-ups nearby that are a bit more concentrated while PIT looks fairly active. I do think PIT is a PPD threat to some degree while the others should not be.
