A look at what’s happening around the majors on Sunday:
Susan G. Komen and Major League Baseball are teaming up in the fight against breast cancer, and Komen’s “Share a Moment with Mom” campaign will debut a Mother’s Day video Sunday. The video will be released on the organization’s social media channels and website. It will also appear in stadiums and feature players such as Pete Alonso, Tim Anderson, Carlos Correa, Carlos Rodón and Mike Trout with their mothers.

Bryce Harper and the Philadelphia Phillies host the New York Mets, Cedric Mullins and the Baltimore Orioles host the Kansas City Royals, and Gerrit Cole and the New York Yankees host the Texas Rangers in the three twinbills.

George Kirby, baseball’s fifth-ranked right-handed pitching prospect according to MLB Pipeline, makes his big league debut for the Seattle Mariners against Tampa Bay.
Kirby was competing with Matt Brash for the final spot in the rotation during spring training. Now Brash is going to be converted to a reliever.
