A Regina-born pitcher made his Major League Baseball debut Monday night.
Dustin Molleken threw two innings for the Detroit Tigers in the 5-3 loss to Cleveland. He got two strikeouts and allowed only one earned run in his first time on the mound.
Molleken could potentially play against the Blue Jays in Toronto when the Tigers visit this weekend.
Detroit has a few injured starters and may rely more on the bullpen.
He was first called up to the majors from the AAA farm team in Toledo two weeks ago, but he didn’t get a chance to play during that stint.
