Tuesday night’s game between the Pittsburgh Pirates and host Detroit Tigers was postponed due to inclement weather.
The game was been rescheduled as part of a traditional doubleheader for Wednesday. First pitch for the first game is slated for 1:10 p.m. ET and the second game will follow.
Detroit will start right-hander Michael Pineda in Game 1. The Tigers said they will recall right-handed pitching prospect Alex Faedo to fill the 27th roster spot for the doubleheader and start the second game, which would be his major league debut.
The Pirates will counter with left-handed relief pitcher Dillon Peters to start Game 1, potentially as an opener. Fellow lefty Jose Quintana, who was originally slated to start Wednesday, will get the ball for the second game.
The teams are playing a two-game series.
