After having the opener of a three-game series postponed in Denver on Monday night, the Colorado Rockies and San Diego Padres will hope to begin their series at wet and chilly Coors Field on Tuesday night.
Here is the latest weather information concerning the Colorado Rockies and San Diego Padres at Coors Field.
With rain falling throughout the day in the Denver area (and some snow in the area on Monday night), the tarp is on the field two hours before first pitch. Temperatures in the low 40s and drizzle will continue until game time and a delay in possible. However, we are in the Coors Field press box and will keep you updated at the bottom of this article with the latest weather-related information.
Antonio Senzatela is scheduled to make his return from the injured list to start the game for the Rockies. The right-hander brings a 1-3 record and 5.76 ERA into the contest and will be looking to rebound from a groin injury that kept his velocity down and saw him give up nine hits in 4.2 innings in an April 29 road start against the Arizona Diamondbacks.

In Senzatela’s last home start, he surrendered five hits and four runs in five innings against Philadelphia.
Senzatela will be opposed on Tuesday night by San Diego’s Dinelson Lamet, who is working his way back from a stint on the injured list as well.
The Padres, however, will be without Fernando Tatis Jr., Jurickson Profar, and Jorge Mateo for the entire series as the trio was placed on the injured list because of COVID-19 protocols.
