Monday’s game is the traditional early contest coinciding with the Boston Marathon, with the Blue Jays and Red Sox finishing off their four-game series. Boston are in early action again on Thursday and, if things stay on the current schedule, that should see David Price making a start against his former team the Tampa Bay Rays.
The Wednesday line-up includes a game from the first Cubs-Cardinals series of the 2016 season, whilst on Thursday currently Clayton Kershaw is due to be pitching for the Dodgers against the Braves. That could be something of a mis-match and an early start (17.10) could also lead to an early finish if Kershaw is on form.
All times are in BST.
