What to expect from the NL West in 2020 (1:36)

With baseball's return on the horizon, take a look at the teams of the NL West as they head into an unprecedented season. (1:36)

The 2020 MLB season is nearly here -- four months later than originally planned.

While this season will be reduced to 60 games, and there will be no fans in attendance at least initially, because of the shutdown forced by the coronavirus pandemic, Opening Day is right around the corner, with two games on July 23 (Yankees-Nationals, 7 p.m. ET; Giants-Dodgers, 10 p.m. ET, both on ESPN).

To get you ready, we have a host of previews and predictions, as well as the Opening Day schedule for every team.
