MLB This Week: Early games on Thursday and Friday

by Matt Smith

May starts off in a slightly disappointing fashion this working week with only Thursday and Friday offering day-game baseball to watch during the British evening.

There are nine early games on Thursday to make up for the slow start. They should include an enticing match-up between Zack Greinke and Max Scherzer from the D-Backs-Nationals series, as well as Danny Salazar and Michael Fulmer squaring off in the Indians-Tigers game and Yu Darvish taking on the Houston Astros.

Then on Friday, after this past weekend’s exciting series at Fenway against the Boston Red Sox, the Chicago Cubs host the New York Yankees in a relatively rare foray to Wrigley Field for the Bronx Bombers.
