Tuesday’s entry is a bit of a fudge as it’s just 50 minutes ahead of that cut-off, yet it still counts and should be a good game in any case with Stephen Strasburg set to take on the Boston Red Sox. All three games of the interleague match-up between Washington and Boston are on the early side, as is the opener between the Detroit Tigers and Pittsburgh Pirates on Monday.
The working week ends with both Chicago teams in day-game action. The White Sox are on the road facing the Tigers, likely a pitching match-up between Jeff Samardzija and David Price, whilst the Cubs host the Padres.
There a few more games on ESPN during the evening this week compared to last and there are also three early games that have been chosen as the MLB.com Free Game of the Day, meaning that everyone can watch them live online via the MLB.TV service even if you don’t have a subscription.
All times are in BST.
