Fantasy baseball - Weekend preview June 8-11 - ESPN
Another eventful weekend is ahead for fantasy baseball.
Thursday's slate is two games heftier, after a pair of postponements due to air-quality concerns created rescheduled games in New York and Philadelphia. The New York Yankees host the Chicago White Sox in a straight doubleheader, Game 1 beginning at 4:05 p.m. ET, while the Philadelphia Phillies host the Detroit Tigers in the finale of their week-opening series with a start time of 6:05 p.m. ET. Keep the changes in mind if you're playing the Thursday slate or planning for the four days ahead.
Speaking of those Yankees, they face their rivals, the Boston Red Sox, for the first time in 2023 this weekend, their three-game series played at Yankee Stadium. Aaron Judge, unfortunately, will miss the contests after landing on the 10-day IL on Wednesday due to his toe injury. The San Diego Padres visit Colorado's Coors Field, a stadium at which they have inexplicably lost 14 of their past 17 games, for three games. And we'll get a showdown between baseball's two best teams, the Tampa Bay Rays and Texas Rangers, in a three-game series at Tropicana Field.
