Today, Matt Vasgersian comes from MLB Network to call the Tampa Bay at Chicago White Sox game with Tim McCarver and Ken Rosenthal. Other games will have Detroit at Minnesota and the Anaheim Angels taking on Texas. And Fox will utilize Daron Sutton from Fox Sports Arizona and Victor Rojas of Fox Sports West to call the games.
Here’s the press release from Fox Sports.
