Here’s a look at what’s happening around the Major on Tuesday:
and one for repeat
Reid Detmers has a chance to match Johnny Vander Meer’s consistent no-hitters feat when he starts for the Los Angeles Angels at the Texas Rangers.
The 22-year-old left-hander made his 11th major league debut on May 10 in a 12-0 win over the Tampa Bay Rays.
“Since that day, I’ve treated it like the next start,” Detmers said on Monday. “Just trying to shrug it off as much as I can and just go about my business. I’m preparing just like any other start. It’s kind of crazy, but I’d rather take it than anything.” It doesn’t do business for anything. It’s something special. It’s finally starting to sink in.”
Detmers hit two, walked one and threw a career-high 108 pitches.
“I just look for bumps in confidence,” said Angels manager Joe Maddon.
Vander Meir is the only pitcher to throw no-hitters in consecutive major league starts for Cincinnati against the Boston Bees on June 11, 1938, and against the Brooklyn Dodgers in the first night’s game at Ebbetts Field four days later.
The Astros could have been without Jake Odorizzi for a while after he fell on his right hand while running to cover first base in the fifth inning on Monday night against the Red Sox and was carried off the Fenway Park arena on a stretcher Was.
Odorizzi, who entered the game with a 15 2/3 innings shutout streak, was seen awkwardly twisting his left leg on the delivery to Kike Hernandez. When he turned to cover first base, he took a step and then stretched down on the grass.
He remained there even after the out was recorded, and Astros staff rushed to look after him. He was unloaded on a stretcher. Odorizzi was 3-2 this season with a 3.13 ERA.
