Thursday's matinée between Yankees and Royals postponed due to rain

Thursday's afternoon matchup between the New York Yankees and Kansas City Royals has been postponed due to rain in New York.

What It Means:

Masahiro Tanaka was scheduled to toe the rubber for the Yankees on Thursday as they were set to host what would have been the first career major league start for Royals right-hander Miguel Almonte. The game will be made up on September 25.

The two clubs currently reside on opposite ends of numberFire's MLB Team Power Rankings, as the Yankees stand tall atop the list while the Royals bring up the rear at 30th.
