Major League Baseball intends to unveil its 2020 schedule on Monday, USA Today's Bob Nightengale reported Saturday.
When MLB announced its impending return last month, it said the season would start July 23 or 24, depending on the team. According to Nightengale, the Yankees and Nationals, and the Dodgers and Giants, will square off in nationally televised games on July 23.
So, Opening Day will be July 24 for the Cubs and White Sox.
Major League Baseball plans to officially announce its 2020 schedule Monday. The #Yankees at #Nats and #SFGiants at #Dodgers are expected to be the two nationally televised games on July 23, with everyone else opening July 24.— Bob Nightengale (@BNightengale) July 4, 2020
The Cubs and Sox will be divisional foes in the abbreviated 2020 season, as schedules will be regionalized in a West, Central and East format.
On Monday, we'll learn how many Crosstown games we'll have this season, which is contingent on how COVID-19 develops and completion is not guaranteed.
