Where the Affiliates Start


Lansing GM Tyler Parsons confirmed this morning that the Lugs’ games will be streamed on milb.tv this season.  They are just finalizing things, and will probably be up and running starting with Lansing’s second homestand of the season, which begins April 13th.


Minor League baseball play begins tomorrow night, and three of the four Blue Jays affiliates will be in action.

The Low A Lansing Lugnuts of the Midwest League kick things off with a pair of games Thursday and Friday against their cross state rivals Great Lakes Loons in Midland, MI.  Game one gets under way Thursday at 6:05 pm.  Game time temperature will be around 3C.  Lansing fireballer Yennsy Diaz gets the start. Both games will be streamed on milb.tv (subscription required).

Great Lakes travels to Lansing to return the favour for a pair of weekend games with the Lugnuts

At 7:00, the High A Florida State League Dunedin Blue Jays visit the neighbouring Clearwater Threshers for the first of two games.  T.J. Zeuch takes to the mound for the D-Jays.  Clearwater makes the short trip to Dunedin for a pair of weekend matches.

Five minutes after Dunedin’s season begins, the AA Eastern League New Hampshire Fisher Cats visit the Hartford Yard Goats in a game streamed on milb.tv.  Francisco Rios gets the start for New Hampshire, who play four games in Hartford before heading to Trenton for three games early next week.

The AAA Buffalo Bisons of the International League begin their season Friday night in Rochester, with Joe Biagini on the hill in another milb.tv game.  The Bisons play 3 against the Red Wings, then travel to Pawtucket for a three-game series beginning Monday.

All of Buffalo and New Hampshire’s games will be streamed this year.  Bradenton is the only Florida State League team with a live online presence.  The D-Jays visit at the beginning of May, and at the end of August.  Lansing will not be streaming their home games, but a number of other MWL teams do.  For Shaw Cable subscribers in Western Canada, select Saturday night Vancouver Canadians games can be viewed live.  For the rest of us, you can watch archived games on their YouTube channel.
