After a couple of Rangers-Indians games to start the working week that creep in under the pre-midnight BST line, Wednesday and Thursday provide a host of good match-ups to enjoy live at a convenient time in the UK.
Corey Kluber should be on the mound for Cleveland on Wednesday and his name always stands out among starting pitchers, but you shouldn’t overlook the Rays’ Blake Snell who has been excellent so far this season. The Cubs will also be hoping for another good showing from Yu Darvish after a slightly shaky start to life with the north-siders.
On Thursday, the Yankees-Astros match-up looks the most enticing, with Tanaka and McCullers currently the probable pitchers.
All times are in BST.
