Late Rush Keeps Three MLB Teams on TV, but Revenue Issues Linger

Mar 29, 2024

The Diamondbacks, Padres, and Rockies are back on local TV, just in time for Thursday’s full start of the 2024 MLB season. But doing so required a last-minute scramble by the league and the trio of clubs, leaving plenty of long-term questions regarding the critical source of team revenue, and they could be joined by additional teams.

The three clubs are on the front lines of historic disruption unfolding all across sports media, as they are each without a traditional regional sports network home. The Padres and Diamondbacks were dropped last year by the bankrupt Diamond Sports Group, while the closure last year of AT&T SportsNet Rocky Mountain in Denver left the Rockies in need of a new local broadcast plan.
