On Sunday night, MLB announced the start times for the first two days of the Wild Card playoff round.
The action starts on Tuesday at 2 PM Eastern on ABC with Astros-Twins, continuing on with White Sox-A’s at 3 PM on ESPN. Turner’s one Wild Card series this year will be the Blue Jays-Rays, and Game 1 of that matchup starts at 5 PM. As expected, the Yankees-Indians series starts in primetime at 7 PM on ESPN, and has the misfortune of going up against the first presidential debate.

Thursday will contain the second games of all four NL matchups and the potential third games of the AL matchups. Friday will feature any necessary NL Game 3s. All games, aside from the potential Blue Jays-Rays Game 3 (airing on TBS), will air on ESPN’s networks.
ESPN has yet to announce its broadcast talent for its slate of games, but TBS has. The duo of Rich Waltz and Jimmy Rollins will call the Blue Jays-Rays series on-site at Tropicana Field.
