The first two games of the A’s-Red Sox series from Boston only narrowly fall in the ‘early’ bracket by five minutes, as does a game from Fenway on Thursday.
However, the rest of the games are all at a convenient time for viewing.
The game between Miami and Minnesota on Tuesday was originally scheduled to feature exciting young pitcher Jose Fernandez, but the Marlins and Twins’ game on Monday has been postponed so now they will play a double-header on Tuesday and we’ll have to wait to see who pitches in which of the two games.
There’s a good selection of games scheduled for Wednesday, including a Stephen Strasburg start in Washington, before four early contests on Thursday including a Dodgers-Mets clash on BBC Radio 5 Live Sports Extra.
All times are in BST.
