“Sunday MLB on TBS” will returns April 7 with an American League Championship Series rematch featuring Triple Crown winner Miguel Cabrera and the 2012 A.L. Champion Detroit Tigers hosting Robinson Cano and the New York Yankees at 1 p.m. ET. Scheduled to take the mound are both team’s respective aces with Detroit’s Justin Verlander and New York’s CC Sabathia as the probable starting pitchers.

TBS’ regular season MLB coverage will include a 26-game regular season schedule and the exclusive telecast of the 2013 MLB All-Star Selection Show presented by Taco Bell on Sunday, June 30.
