Twelve early MLB games this week

by Matt Smith

There are twelve early MLB games this working week, including some bonus baseball on Monday.

The Giants and Mets were rained out on Sunday, so they will play a double-header on Monday with Tim Lincecum scheduled to make the start in the first game.

ESPN America will be showing the game at Miller Park on Wednesday between the Astros and Brewers, while it should be a good series in Arizona this week between the D-Backs and Phillies and the second game will be a day-game.

There are only eight MLB games in total on Thursday and five of them start between 17.05 and 18.10 BST. Nat Coombs and Josh Chetwynd will be presenting the Angels-Rays game on BBC 5 Live Sports Extra. It’s also scheduled to be the ‘Free Game of the Day’ on MLB.TV, so you can watch the game there and listen to Nat and Josh’s comments between innings on your Digital radio or on the BBC.co.uk website.

All times are in BST.

A quick update on Wednesday’s pitching list, the Oakland A’s have called up pitching prospect Jarrod Parker to make the start against the White Sox.

Parker was acquired from the Diamondbacks in the trade that sent Trevor Cahill to Arizona. Cahill himself is scheduled to be pitching against Cole Hamels and the Phillies on Wednesday as well.
