A look at what’s happening around the majors on Wednesday:
Tigers lefty Eduardo Rodríguez gets a look at his former teammates when he pitches against Boston at Comerica Park.
Rodriguez was 64-39 in six seasons with Rafael Devers, Xander Bogaerts and the Red Sox before signing a $77 million, five-year contract with Detroit as a free agent.
“All in all, I’m going to enjoy having the opportunity to face my old teammates,” he said.
The 29-year-old Rodriguez gave up three runs and four hits in four innings against the White Sox in his Detroit debut.
Remarkable Cleveland rookie Steven Kwan has now reached base at least three times in all five games of his major league career.
The 24-year-old outfielder kept up his super start with a single, two walks and a sacrifice fly Tuesday in a 10-5 win at Cincinnati.
Kwan is batting 10 for 15 since making his debut on opening day. He has reached base in 18 of 24 plate appearances, the most times for any player in his first five games since 1901.
Kwan also has swung 39 times and not completely missed a single time, according to Statcast.
The lefty hitter and the Guardians next face lefty Nick Lodolo, who will make his big league debut. The Reds picked him seventh overall in the 2019 draft.
Off to a sensational start, Padres newcomer Sean Manaea is back on the mound at San Francisco.
Traded from Oakland to San Diego in the final week of spring training, the 30-year-old lefty pitched seven hitless innings against Arizona in his Padres debut. Manaea was pulled after 88 pitches with the no-hitter intact.
Manaea pitched six seasons for the A’s before being dealt. He’s still waiting to settle into San Diego — the trade came while he was in Arizona…
