Cole-Scherzer matchup to highlight Major League Baseball opening day

Sources -- Nationals to host Yankees on Opening Day

Some players, though, remain concerned as they begin to ramp up baseball activities amid the coronavirus pandemic.

Per MLB's plans for the shortened 60-game schedule, the Nationals will play all five AL East teams, as well as 10 games apiece against each of their four NL East rivals. The person spoke on condition of anonymity because there hasn't been an official announcement.

This will be a primetime game on July 23. The schedule is still being worked out - there could be a game or two on the first day of play, or a full slate. The game will take place at Nationals Park in Washington.

Cole faced the Nationals while with the Houston Astros in last year's World Series.

Howie Kendrick, Anthony Rendon and the Nationals won the last two games to earn their first championship.


Cole, 29, would be making his Yankees debut after signing a nine-year, $324 million contract in December.

Players and staff members will start traveling to training camp sites - most of which will be held in home stadiums - for a July 1 check-in.

"I have a 3-week-old baby". This season has gone through enough difficulties and it can only pray that there would not be more coming.

According to the deal reached by Major League Baseball and the players' association earlier this week, teams will play each of their four divisional opponents 10 times.
