BREAKING: Detroit Tigers call up pitcher from Erie to take on Justin Verlander and Astros

According to reports, the Detroit Tigers will recall pitcher Gregory Soto from Double-A Erie to start on Wednesday against Justin Verlander and the Houston Astros.

Soto made his first career Major League start on May 11th in a loss to the Minnesota Twins. During that game, he lasted just four innings, giving up seven earned runs on nine hits while striking out just one.

Let’s hope start No. 2 goes a little better. That being said, he is pitching against a red-hot Astros lineup, so it could get ugly!
