Matt Vasgersian will have the call for each game. He will be joined in the booth by analysts Alex Rodriguez and Jessica Mendoza — who recently reached an agreement with ESPN on a multi-year contract extension — for additional commentary. Reporter Buster Olney will also be on hand for all of the games’ latest news and interviews.
Each game will be preceded by Baseball Tonight: Sunday Night Countdown presented by Chevrolet at 6 p.m.
