Jones is making his broadcast analyst debut. He had a stellar 17-year MLB career in which he was a five-time All-Star, a 10-time Gold Glove Award winner and hit 434 home runs from 1996-2012. Sweeney is an analyst for Bally Sports San Diego covering the Padres, as well as a pre- and postgame analyst for FS1’s MLB coverage.

NBC Sports’ Ahmed Fareed hosts the MLB Sunday Leadoff pre- and postgame shows each week, and also serves as the in-game reporter. This Sunday, Fareed was joined by former MLB outfielder and World Series champion Nick Swisher as a pre- and postgame analyst.
