MLB This Week: King Felix to return, and more

by Matt Smith

CovMLBUK2014Wednesday and Thursday are the early-game evenings this working week and BT Sport will be showing MLB games lives on two of their four channels simultaneously on both days.

It’s the time of year when starting pitcher assignments can change with short notice due to trades and there are a few pitchers currently due to start an early-game this week that might be playing for another team by then. The Rays reportedly are ready to part with a few arms and whilst it would be a surprise if Chris Archer is one of them, he has been mentioned in a few trade rumours over the past week.

The  Twin’s Ervin Santana could also be on the move and a duel against Justin Verlander and the Tigers would be a good opportunity for scouts to see if he could offer their team anything over the rest of the season.

Away from the trade rumours, Wednesday should see the return to the mound of Felix Hernandez. The Mariners’ ace last started on 27 May before a calf injury landed him on the Disabled List, so the King’s Court will be back in session at Safeco Field after a mid-season adjournment.

All times are in BST.
