LOS ANGELES -- ESPN got an early start on setting most of the first half of their 2016 Sunday Night Baseball schedule, with three exclusive nationally televised Dodgers games among the matchups announced on Monday.

The Dodgers will host the Giants on April 17 at Dodger Stadium at 5 p.m. PT, then head to New York on May 29 for an NLDS rematch against the Mets on ESPN2. The other announced ESPN Sunday Night Baseball contest involving the Dodgers is another matchup with the Giants, this time June 12 in San Francisco.

That latter game in San Francisco is a rare 5:30 p.m. PT start, part of an ESPN doubleheader that day, with Cardinals at Pirates at 2 p.m.

The Sunday Night Baseball telecasts are exclusive to ESPN, and will not be televised by SportsNet LA.

ESPN will announce other Sunday night matchups throughout the season, with two to three weeks of notice.

The Dodgers will also have their opening day game televised nationally by ESPN, a 4 p.m. game against the Padres in San Diego on Monday, April 4, though that isn't an exclusive telecast, and will also be shown on SportsNet LA.

The announced ESPN Sunday Night Baseball schedule to date (all 5 p.m. on ESPN unless otherwise noted):

April 3: Mets at Royals (5:30 p.m.)

April 10: Yankees at Tigers

April 17: Giants at Dodgers

April 24: Red Sox at Astros

May 1: Yankees at Red Sox
