MLB Spring Training Schedule 2020: Which Games Are on TV This Week?

MLB Spring Training continues Monday and Tuesday, with another 34 games scheduled over the next two days.

Inclement weather caused havoc on Saturday, with six games cancelled or shortened, including the Houston Astros' first meeting against the Washington Nationals since the 2019 World Series.

The two teams share a training facility at the FITTEAM Ballpark of The Palm Beaches in West Palm Beach, Florida, and met on Saturday in a rain-shortened two-innings game.

In the wake of the sign-stealing scandal, Houston has become enemy number one for fans and players of the other 29 franchises and such feelings were made very clear in Miami on Saturday.

Astros players and their mascot were loudly booed, while a number of National fans held signs jeering the 2017 World Series winners.

Houston manager Dusty Baker admitted his players can expect similar treatment throughout the season, following the sign-stealing scandal that has engulfed the franchise over the last four months.

"You'll probably get the same reception most places you go, especially the first go-round," he was quoted as saying by ESPN. "So, you've just got to put your big-boy pants on and then just try to shut it out and just play baseball and realize this too shall pass."

In November, a report from The Athletic revealed the Astros had illegally used technology to decipher their opponents' signs during the 2017 season—when the team won the World Series—and during the part of the following campaign. The signs were then relayed to Houston batters in real time by banging on a garbage can.

In the aftermath, the league fined the Astros a record $5 million and banned Astros general manager Jeff Luhnow and manager AJ Hinch—who were subsequently fired by the organization—but opted not to punish the players.

Aside from the rematch between Houston and Washington, the Arizona Diamondbacks canceled their matchup against the Colorado Rockies due to bad weather.

The Cincinnati Reds game against the Cleveland Indians also fell victim to adverse weather, as did the Texas Rangers matchup against the Milwaukee Brewers, the Chicago White Sox game against the Los Angeles Angels and the San Diego Padres clash with the Seattle Mariners.

The Astros take on the Miami Marlins on Tuesday, while the Los Angeles Dodgers face the White Sox on Monday as the Philadelphia Phillies take on the Baltimore Orioles.

Not all the 34 matchups scheduled for Monday and Tuesday will be broadcast live and none of those scheduled for broadcast will be available nationwide.
