There are 27 games scheduled to start before midnight UK time this working week, including today’s ‘glorious’ Bank Holiday Monday.
Heading into the week there are four teams still searching for the first victory. The Cincinnati Reds, Detroit Tigers, Kansas City Royals and San Diego Padres know that their first W is just around the corner, but they would like to get it sooner rather than later. The Royals and Tigers know that one of them will definitely get that monkey off their back today as they meet at Comerica Park.
There are some good teams on show in the early games on BT Sport this week, although unfortunately neither of the two 9 o’clock games on Friday are being broadcast. Tuesday’s game should see Chris Sale taking the mound at Marlins Ballpark for the Red Sox in an early interleague series for Boston (also available to watch for free on MLB.com), whilst Thursday should be an excellent game from Nationals Ballpark as Stephen Strasburg is in line to face Jacob deGrom and the Mets.
There is also a good group MLB.com Free Games in the early slots, not least on Wednesday when Dylan Bundy and Dallas Keuchel are the probable pitchers for the Orioles-Astros game.
All times are in BST.
