There's some heavy rain expected in the northeast Monday evening, which has now postponed the Boston Red Sox-Detroit Tigers matchup with concerns of inclement weather at Fenway Park.

There was an 84 percent chance of rain projected for the first pitch of the Red Sox-Tigers game, which was initially scheduled to start at 7:10 p.m. EST. Boston was still planning on playing the game this morning, but announced the contest would be postponed as the weather showed no sign of improvement later this afternoon.

While the hardest of the rain will be concentrated around Boston, there is also a chance of precipitation down the coast in Queens, New York, where the New York Mets take on the Philadelphia Phillies at Citi Field at 7 p.m. EST.

The Mets can expect a bit of rain toward the start of the game, but the weather is supposed to let up later in the night.

Outside of the two games in the northeast, most everyone else can expect beautiful baseball weather, with the exception of some mild wind in St. Louis. The Cardinals host the Milwaukee Brewers at 7:45 p.m. EST, and St. Louis is currently expecting 11 mph winds blowing out to left field.

Eight of the 10 games on Monday's slate are expecting wonderful weather, and the Mets-Phillies matchup isn't likely to see conditions poor enough to cancel the game.
