We start the working week with a very early game from Fenway Park on Monday as the Orioles and Red Sox complete their four-game series.
Wednesday’s sole early game takes us into the AL Central and a pitching match-up between Jeff Sarmdzija and the reigning Cy Young winner Corey Kluber.
Thursday is the key evening this work for catching some live baseball without sacrificing sleep. Highlights include a Masahiro Tanaka start for the Yankees against the Detroit Tigers, Zack Greinke facing the Giants in a game available to watch for free on MLB.com, and Max Scherzer starting at home for the Nationals against the Cardinals.
All times are in BST.
