MLB Opening Day 2015 TV schedule on ESPN networks

Monday, April 6, is opening day at MLB ballparks across the country, and ESPN and ESPN2 combine to present four national TV games: the Toronto Blue Jays at the N.Y. Yankees (ESPN), the N.Y. Mets at the Washington Nationals (ESPN), the Cleveland Indians at the Houston Astros (ESPN) and the 2014 World Series champion San Francisco Giants at the Arizona Diamondbacks (ESPN2).

The Hot Stove could cause major climate change for some Major League Baseball teams heading into the 2015 season.

The San Diego Padres loaded up with pitcher James Shields, and outfielders Matt Kemp, Justin Upton and Wil Myers. The Chicago Cubs brought on manager Joe Maddon and prized pitcher Jon Lester. The St. Louis Cardinals countered by adding Jason Heyward. Max Scherzer gives the Washington Nationals the best rotation in baseball. The Boston Red Sox bring Pablo Sandoval, Hanley Ramirez and Cuban outfielder Rusney Castillo into the fold. The Seattle Mariners add Nelson Cruz’s bat to the lineup. The New York Yankees have Alex Rodriguez back after his season-long suspension. Yay for them.

Only a few months on the job, new commissioner Rob Manfred is putting his stamp on the game, introducing new rules to speed up the pace of play. He’s also contemplating the possibility of a shortened 154-game regular season.

The regular season begins April 5 on ESPN2 with a Sunday Night Baseball visit to Wrigley Field — which is undergoing a four-year renovation — as the Cardinals visit the Cubs. ESPN, ESPN2, FOX Sports 1 and MLB Network air national TV games throughout the regular season. FOX will have its early summer slate of Saturday primetime games, and TBS returns with Sunday afternoon games beginning near the All-Star Break.
