CLEVELAND — Maybe the weather will at last stall some of the momentum the Yankees have established two weeks into the season.

Nothing else has.

The Yankees, off to the second-best 13-game start in franchise history at 10-3, did not get a chance to build on that Friday night as their game against the Guardians, off to a 9-3 start of their own, was rained out.

It will be made up as part of a split doubleheader Saturday, the games starting at 12:10 p.m. and 6:10 p.m., respectively.

Clarke Schmidt, Friday night’s scheduled starter, will start the first game and Cody Poteet will start the second game.

It was not immediately clear how the Yankees will juggle the rotation from there. Luis Gil, initially slated to throw Saturday, could be bumped to Sunday, but the club might not want to disrupt the routine of Sunday’s scheduled starter, Nestor Cortes. If the case is the latter, Gil, the fifth starter, instead could slot in during the upcoming series in Toronto, which starts Monday.
