Fox just released their regular season broadcast schedule across Fox Sports and FS1 in 2020 and the Padres nabbed just three games: one each in the months of May, June, and July.
The first time you can catch the Padres is when they visit the Cincinnati Reds on Saturday, May 23rd. Two weeks later, you’ll be able to catch them again when they visit the Arizona Diamondbacks on Saturday, June 6th. Finally, their final broadcasted game will be a month and a half later on Saturday, July 25th.
Three games across the entire nationally-televised slate seems a bit disrespectful for a team with a number of young and exciting players. What’s even more surprising, and in a way it’s a slap to the face of a lot of other teams, is that the Houston Astros have seven games on the schedule. The defending World Series Champion Washington Nationals have six. It looks like Fox is really gunning for those ratings this season.
