With the World Baseball Classic over and Opening Day not until Thursday, you might be feeling a bit of a baseball void right now. But you don’t have to.
Here are some of the games that you can check out during MLB.TV’s free preview.
MLB.TV’s free preview starts off with a full day of baseball, with 12 games available to stream for free from 1:05 p.m. ET to 9:40 p.m. ET.
The Braves’ Ronald Acuña Jr., the Phillies’ Trea Turner and Kyle Schwarber, the Mets’ Francisco Lindor and Pete Alonso, the Mariners’ Julio Rodríguez and the Dodgers’ Mookie Betts are among the stars who are back with their clubs after playing in the World Baseball Classic.
You can check out all of those teams Friday, with the Mets taking on the Rays at 1:05 p.m. ET, the Dodgers facing the Brewers at 4:05 p.m. ET, the Halos taking on the Padres at 4:10 p.m. ET, the Braves squaring off with the Red Sox at 6:05 p.m. ET, the Phils matching up against the Blue Jays at 6:07 p.m. ET and the Mariners hosting the A’s at 9:40 p.m. ET.
With Opening Day five days from Saturday, this could be the day a number of aces get their final tune-ups for the regular season, keeping them on schedule to start their respective season openers.
The annual exhibition Freeway Series between the Angels and Dodgers will get under way Sunday at Dodger Stadium (9:10 p.m. ET). This could be the first time Shohei Ohtani and Mike Trout are back in the Angels’ lineup together since the end of the Classic.
An AL East rivalry game between the Yankees and Blue Jays (1:05 p.m. ET) and an intriguing Mariners-Padres showdown (4:10 p.m. ET) — J-Rod and Fernando Tatis Jr. on the same field?! — are among the other games on Sunday’s slate.
MLB.TV’s free preview wraps up with another action-packed slate.
