MLB This Week: Toussaint debut, Brewers-Cubs times two and more

There’s a chance to catch some pre-midnight UK time baseball every day this working week.

Whilst the Friday game, Mets-Phillies, isn’t a true early game (starting at 23.05), on all the other days there’s some good baseball to watch during the British evening.

Monday’s early game is part of a double-header at SunTrust Park as the Braves host the Marlins, with the early game being a make-up date for a rain-out from the start of August. Touki Toussaint, one of Atlanta’s crop of promising young pitchers, is scheduled to make his Major League debut in this one.

You don’t often see BT Sport showing two games from the same series back-to-back during the working week, but they’re doing that this week on Tuesday and Wednesday with the Brewers and Cubs.

On Thursday evening there will be live baseball on two BT Sport channels, with the Rays-Yankees game on BT Sport2 being joined by coverage from the Little League World Series on BT Sport/ESPN.

All times are in BST.
