The Opener: Lorenzen, Robles, Doubleheader

A week into the 2024 season, here are 3 things to follow around Major League Baseball today:

This night, Michael Lorenzen will make his 2nd rehabilitation start for the Round Rock Express, the Triple-A affiliate of the Rangers (per Evan Grant of The Dallas Morning News). He tossed 50 pitches in his very first rehab look and might toss 65-70 today. If all works out, Grant keeps in mind that Lorenzen might be triggered next week; the earliest he can return from the 15-day IL is Tuesday. When Lorenzen rejoins the rotation, he is most likely to press out Cody Bradford, who made the No. 5 task this spring.

2. MRI results for Victor Robles:

After hurting his hamstring on Wednesday, Victor Robles is set to go through an MRI today. Pending the outcomes of the scan, it’s possible the center fielder will require a minimum of a brief stint on the hurt list; both Mark Zuckerman of MASN and Spencer Nusbaum of The Washington Post hypothesized as much last night.

If Robles does certainly struck the IL, anticipate a statement from the Nationals earlier instead of later on. The group will handle the Pirates this afternoon at 3:05 pm CT, while supervisor Dave Martinez will host a pregame interview at twelve noon. What’s more, the Triple-A Rochester Red Wings play today at 12:05 pm CT, and as TalkNats mentions, their lineup statement might recommend who (if anybody) is headed to Washington to change Robles on the active lineup.

3. Mets, Tigers take on in doubleheader:

There are just 6 video games on the docket in Major League Baseball today, and the Mets and Tigers will take on in 2 of them. After getting drizzled out on Tuesday and Wednesday, the 2 groups will play a doubleheader starting this afternoon at 11:10 am CT. The 2nd video game will start roughly thirty minutes after the very first one concludes. The Mets (0-4) have actually now been resting on a winless record for numerous days, while the Tigers (4-0) are the only group left standing with an ideal record. Adrian Houser of the Mets and Casey Mize of the Tigers will take the mound in video game one, while Detroit will raise Matt Manning and New York will raise José Buttó (per Mike Puma of the New York Post) as the 27th males to begin video game 2.
