Take a look at what’s happening today around majors:
AND ON THE BIS
Reid Detmers has a chance to match the success of Johnny Vander Meyer, who hasn’t scored in a row when he starts behind the Los Angeles Angels at the Texas Rangers.
The 22-year-old left-hander showed his pearl in a 12-0 win over the Tampa Bay Race on May 10 in his 11th major league opening tournament.
“From the next day, I treat it like the next start,” Detmers said Monday. “I’m just trying to push it aside as much as I can and just go about my business. I’m getting ready like any other start. It was kind of crazy, but I wouldn’t trade it for anything. This is something special. It’s finally starting to sink. “
Detmers struck out two, passed one and threw 108 throws.
“I’m just looking for confidence,” Angels manager Joe Madonna said.
Vander Mir is the only pitcher who did not score in the first starts of the Cincinnati Premier League against Boston Bee on June 11, 1938 and against the Brooklyn Dodgers four days later in the first night’s game at Abbets Field.
The Astros may be without Jake Adarica some time after the right-hander injured his left leg and collapsed, running to cover first base in the fifth inning on Monday night against the Red Sox. He was taken out of the Fenway Park field on a stretcher.
Adarica, who entered the game with a series of 15 2/3 of the half, awkwardly twisted his left leg during the delivery of Kike Hernandez. When he turned to cover the first base, he took a step and then lay face down on the grass.
The team said he had “left shin discomfort” and manager Dusty Baker said Adarica would receive an MRI. The pitcher was on crutches, in shoes and in a good mood after the game, Baker said.
“He’s probably getting better than it looked on the embankment,” Baker said.
WE PLAY TWO
The New York Mets are playing in their fourth double-header of the season, taking on the St. Louis Cardinals after Monday’s start of a four-game series was postponed due to rain. This will be the first meeting of the teams since a fight over the cleanup of the bench last month in St. Louis.
The Chicago White Sox play doubles in Kansas City, and the Los Angeles Dodgers host the Arizona Diamondbacks in another twin on the day 18 games are scheduled.
“New York” (23-13 of the best in the NL) defeated the “Giants” on April 19 and the “Atlanta Braves” on May 3, both at home, and then on May 8 in Philadelphia split in two. It will be the first doubleheader this season for the Cardinals. (19-15).
Long man Trevor Williams (0-2, 5.73) is expected to take the place for the Mets instead of the injured Taylor Magil, and right-hander Taijuan Walker (1-0, 3.00 ERA) will also start with an order to be announced. Miles Nicholas (3-1, 1.49 ERA) and left Stephen Matz (3-3, 6.40) start in St. Louis.
Joan Adon, a 23-year-old right-hander, wildly started behind the Washington Nationals. After making his Premier League debut on October 3 last year, Adon took to the start on Tuesday in the Miami Marlins, leveling the Premier League advantage in losses, with a score of 1-6 with an ERA of 7.03. His 23 walks lead in the major leagues. His 7.03 ERA will be the highest in the major leagues, but he entered Tuesday with 32 innings, five innings remaining from qualifying.
