The Washington Nationals will make up their postponed three-game series with the Miami Marlins over multiple dates when the teams were previously scheduled to play. Saturday, Aug. 22, the Nationals will be the home team in the first game of a doubleheader, then the road team in the second game. Doubleheaders now consist of two seven-inning games.

CUTDOWN DAY Cuts are coming for players around the majors as teams trim their active rosters from 30 players to 28, per plans agreed to by MLB and the union before the start of this virus-shortened 60-game season. The sides decided Tuesday that rosters will remain at 28 through the World Series, instead of dropping to 26 on Aug. 20 as initially planned.
