It looks like the wind could be a factor in Sunday's slate of MLB games.

While there's no rain expected in Chicago this afternoon, the wind is expected to be blowing out to left field, which could be bad news for starting pitchers Robbie Ray, of the Arizona Diamondbacks, and Tyler Chatwood, for the Cubs.

Similarly, wind may also be a factor in today's 3:05 p.m. EST matchup between the Houston Astros and Texas Rangers.

However, winds will be blowing in from right field, which could affect both team's offenses, rather than the pitching matchup.

Additionally, light showers are being forecast in Denver this afternoon. While it doesn't look like the rain will cause a delay or a postponement for the final game of a four-game set between the Philadelphia Phillies and Colorado Rockies, it is worth noting, as rain can affect both hitting and pitching on any given day.

It looks like all 15 scheduled MLB games will be played today, despite the strong winds in Chicago and light rain expected in Denver this afternoon.
