However, there’s still a decent batch of live games to watch at a convenient time in the UK.
Not least of which is an AL West clash between the Angels and Astros on Wednesday. That game is being shown live on BT Sport from 19.10, with the Mariners-White Sox game available for free on MLB.com at the same time.
This week’s Facebook game (available for free, but only to Facebook subscribers) is scheduled to be a lively affair, as Ben Lively should take the mound for the Phillies against Arizona on Thursday. Both New York teams are in early action that day too, with the working week ending with a day-game at Wrigley.
All times are in BST.
