Orioles’ 2023 schedule, featuring games against all 29 other teams and a visit from Buck Showalter’s Mets, released – Boston Herald

The Orioles will begin a 2023 schedule featuring matchups with all 29 other major league teams March 30 on the road against the Boston Red Sox. It will mark the fifth straight season opener away from Camden Yards.

After that series, the Orioles visit the Texas Rangers before their home opener April 6 against the New York Yankees.

As per Major League Baseball’s new collective bargaining agreement, the Orioles will now play all 29 other teams each season, which means fewer games against their American League East rivals. Rather than the usual 19 matchups with each divisional opponent, Baltimore will face the Red Sox, Yankees, Tampa Bay Rays and Toronto Blue Jays 13 times each. They’ll continue to play a series each at home and on the road against teams from the AL West and the AL Central.

Among their meetings with every National League team, the Orioles will host Buck Showalter’s New York Mets at Camden Yards in a series Aug. 4-6. Showalter managed the Orioles from 2010 to 2018 and led them to three postseason berths, including the AL East title in 2014. They will also face Manny Machado, the star infielder they traded at the 2018 deadline to kickstart their rebuild, former Washington Nationals star Juan Soto and the San Diego Padres on Aug. 14-16 at Petco Park. The Los Angeles Dodgers, the 2020 World Series champions, will visit Camden Yards shortly after the All-Star break on July 17-19.

Among the notable road trips is a visit to Oracle Park on June 2-4 to take on the San Francisco Giants. The Orioles haven’t faced the Giants on the road since 2016, the last year they made the playoffs. Baltimore will also face the Milwaukee Brewers on the road June 6-8 for the first time since 2017 and return to Wrigley Field to play the Chicago Cubs on June 16-18.

The Orioles have home games on Easter (April 9 against the Yankees), Mother’s Day (May 14 against the Pittsburgh Pirates) and Memorial Day (May 29 against the Cleveland Guardians). They play at Yankee Stadium on the Fourth of July.

Baltimore ends the season with a six-game homestand featuring two games against the Nationals and four against Boston, with the regular-season finale scheduled for Oct. 1. The Orioles have only two scheduled days off in September.
