The week starts with the traditional early game at Fenway Park on Patriots Day, which will be an emotional occasion on the one-year anniversary of the Boston Marathon tragedy.
After a break on Tuesday we have a batch of games on Wednesday highlighted by a clash between the top two teams in the AL West, the Rangers and A’s. With Martin Perez and Sonny Gray being the probable starting pitchers, it should be an exciting game.
‘Get-away’ Thursday offers six day-games including a Max Scherzer start for the Tigers and a Bartolo Colon start for the Mets. The latter continues to defy his age – and physique – with his pitching performances, whilst providing a regular source of amusement when his turns at-bat come around.
All times are in BST.
