Doubleheader in Detroit as Tigers host Reds

A Detroit rookie will make his first start, but it won't be the one Tigers fans have been clamoring to watch.

There was speculation that Detroit might promote Casey Mize, the No. 1 overall pick of the 2018 draft, from their taxi squad and start him against Cincinnati on Sunday. Following the postponement of Saturday's game due to inclement weather, the Tigers announced instead that Rony Garcia and Daniel Norris would start Sunday as part of a doubleheader with two seven-inning games.

Garcia, a 22-year-old right-hander, made his major league debut in a relief role against Kansas City on Tuesday.
