All three games of the series at Target Field between the Oakland A’s and Minnesota Twins are scheduled to be day-games, whilst there will also be two games apiece from series between the Orioles and Yankees, Reds and Cardinals, and Rangers and Red Sox.
All games are subject to postponements and the likelihood is increased at this time of the year. The Phillies’ home opener against the Brewers was originally scheduled to be a day-game on Monday; however that has already been postponed due to the prospect of bad weather and they will now play an early game on Tuesday instead. This has been taken into account in the schedule below.
Here are the games that are scheduled to start before midnight U.K. time this working week, with all times stated in BST.

No early games
Taking the above games into account, the Seattle Mariners are the only team not to have played a scheduled day-game during the working week so far, although they did play in a rescheduled day-game against the A’s last Wednesday.
The three day-games played by the Twins this week puts them at the top of the ‘early’ game season standings with seven, followed by the Royals and White Sox with five.
