Orioles' 60-game 2020 season begins with Opening Day on the road in Boston

Baseball is coming.

Major League Baseball announced its 2020 schedule on Monday evening, as each of the league's 30 clubs found out their 60-game slate for this year's pandemic-shortened season. For the Baltimore Orioles, that means an away date with the Boston Red Sox when the sport returns.

Baltimore will travel to Boston for a three-game series with rival Red Sox, starting on Friday, July 24, to begin its 2020 season. After a quick two-game series with the Miami Marlins following their weekend series in Boston, Baltimore returns home for an eight-game homestand beginning with the team's home opener on July 29 against Miami.

The Orioles are scheduled for a 10-game homestand from August 14-23, hosting series with the Washington Nationals, Toronto Blue Jays and Boston Red Sox.

However, the O's will head on the road for over a week immediately after, as Baltimore will play seven consecutive games away from Camden Yards from August 25-31.

The New York Yankees, arguably Baltimore's toughest opponent this season, first come to Baltimore on August 3 for a three-game series. Baltimore will have an extended stay in New York from September 8-13, as they are scheduled for a two-game series with the Mets before a four-game set with the Yankees.

Baltimore's season will conclude with two road series, beginning in Boston from September 22-24 before traveling to Toronto from September 25-27.

Masahiro Tanaka hit in the head off a comebacker from Giancarlo Stanton

Masahiro Tanaka hit in the head off a comebacker from Giancarlo Stanton

New York Yankees starting pitcher Masahiro Tanaka took a scary line drive off of his head during the Yankees practice on Saturday. 

The comebacker came from the bat of the hard-hitting Giancarlo Stanton at Yankee Stadium. Tanaka was throwing a simulated game during the team's first day back together for practice at 'Training Camp 2.0.'

Below is the video of the 31-year-old right-hander being struck. Warning: the video is graphic.

According to multiple reports, Tanaka was on the ground for roughly five minutes and immediately attended to by New York's training staff. Afterward, Tanaka was able to walk to the dugout with some assistance.

The team announced Tanaka is alert, responsive and was sent to a local hospital for further evaluation and testing.

The six-year veteran has spent his entire United States baseball career with the Yankees. Last year he posted a disappointing 11-9 record and a 4.45 ERA. He is expected to be the Bronx Bombers' No. 2 starter behind offseason acquisition Gerrit Cole.

Already the Yankees lost one starting pitcher this season as Luis Severino underwent Tommy John surgery in the spring.
