First off, let’s talk about Opening Day. The Astros will be facing off against the Chicago White Sox, and the injury update isn’t anything new.

But of course, it’s not just about the Astros. We’ve got news from all around the league, including the Angels’ top prospect Logan O’Hoppe getting an Opening Day start, the Athletics trading Cristian Pache to the Phillies, and the Giants and A’s making their cases for why Bay Area baseball fans should buy tickets. And let’s not forget about the Year of Shohei Ohtani and the Rangers’ new team. The Mariners also have some burning questions and potential for improvement, according to experts.
Looking at the league as a whole, we’ve got predictions for the full baseball standings, playoff fields, and World Series winners. MLB Commissioner Rob Manfred even goes in-depth on the pursuit of an automated strike zone. And if you’re looking for some birthday shoutouts, Astros player Alex Bregman is still crushing it at 29 years old.
