Yes, this is a regular season MLB game, the first of 2019. The Seattle Mariners and Oakland A’s have both been in Japan this week for exhibitions against local teams before the two-game series.
This will be the first MLB game in Tokyo since 2012, when it was the Mariners and Athletics again. Prior to that, it was Oakland and Boston in 2008.
In addition to Tokyo, the big leagues will be in Mexico in both April and May and then London, for the first time, in late June with a two-game series between the Red Sox and Yankees.
As far as this game goes, it will pit the lefty Marcos Gonzales against Mike Fiers, the guy I was disappointed didn’t get the start against the Yankees in Oakland’s wild card loss.
It’s the first season in 10 years that Felix Hernandez won’t start the Mariners’ first game of the season. Instead, Gonzales, who is 27 years old and came over in a trade with St. Louis two seasons back, gets his first shot.
Fiers was great last season, helping his teams to a 21–9 record on days he started, which included the Detroit Tigers, who were quite terrible.
It’s his first Opening Day start of his career and good for him. As a hard-throwing righty, he may not have many top-notch seasons left in his arm at age 33 (he’ll turn 34 in June).

Free Seattle Mariners vs. Oakland Athletics MLB Prediction: Oakland.
Honestly, you may be better off taking the underdog at this point in a funny spot but I do want to highlight the idea that the A’s should still be really good this season. It’s not like they went all in last year and lost out.
I’ll write lots of Oakland again this year so more later. It’s just great to have baseball back.
