On Tuesday, Fox announced FS1’s schedule of regular season MLB games, which includes 37 games across a variety of nights over the next two-plus months.

Notably, there isn’t really a set day each week where FS1 will have games – it’s a hodgepodge, including ESPN’s traditional Monday and Wednesday night windows (thanks to NBA coverage). I have no idea what this means for ESPN’s weeknight MLB coverage in 2020 aside from that it seems like there will be less of it on a weekly basis.

Last week, ESPN and Fox released their nationally televised schedules, which includes ESPN’s Sunday Night Baseball and Fox broadcast games on a variety of Thursdays and Saturdays.

Here’s the full schedule, with all start times Eastern. In case some of those start times look weird (weeknight 6 PM starts, for example), those are within minutes of the actual start times: this isn’t an MLS situation where the game window starts when the full pregame show starts. These games are typically not national exclusives, and also air locally.

Of note, the Yankees and Red Sox each only appear once (!), largely because each appears twice on Sunday Night Baseball and three times on national Fox broadcasts. The World Champion Nationals and AL champion Astros both also only show up once on this schedule (zero Sunday Night Baseball and three national Fox games for each), while several teams, including the Dodgers, Cubs, Braves, Phillies, and Brewers, appear three times each. The San Diego Padres and Detroit Tigers, who each lost 90 games last season, appear five times apiece, while the Arizona Diamondbacks and the 93-loss Pittsburgh Pirates show up four times each.
