GROWING AWARENESS

Susan G. Komen and Major League Baseball are teaming up in the fight against breast cancer, and Komen’s “Share a Moment with Mom” ​​campaign will release a Mother’s Day video. The video will be published on the organization’s social media channels and website. It will also appear in stadiums and feature players like Pete Alonso, Tim Anderson, Carlos Correa, Carlos Rodón and Mike Trout with their mothers.

COMPLETE THEM

After rain threw up the baseball schedule this weekend, there are 18 games on the schedule, including three doubleheaders.

Bryce Harper and the Philadelphia Phillies host the New York Mets, Cedric Mullins and the Baltimore Orioles host the Kansas City Royals, and Gerrit Cole and the New York Yankees host the Texas Rangers in the three twinbills.

That comes after six postponements on Friday and three more on Saturday. The Rangers are making their only scheduled trip to play the Yankees this season, and the same can be said for the Royals in Baltimore. After the double headers on Sunday, these two series are now extended into Monday.

DEBUT

George Kirby, the fifth-ranked right-hander in baseball according to MLB Pipeline, makes his major league debut for the Seattle Mariners against Tampa Bay.

Kirby battled Matt Brash for last spot in the rotation during spring training. Now Brash is converted to a reliever.

The Mariners took Kirby in the first round of the 2019 draft. He started the season at Double-A Arkansas, where he went 2-0 in five starts with a 1.82 ERA.

HELP ON THE WAY

Oakland outfielder Ramón Laureano may return after his 80-game drug ban. Athletics manager Mark Kotsay said he will travel to Minnesota on Saturday to join the team. Laureano played 10 games with Triple-A Las Vegas.

The basement-dwelling A’s lost eight straight games before their game against the Twins. Minnesota leads the AL Central but may have to deal with an absence of its own after star outfielder Byron Buxton left Saturday’s game with a right hip ailment.
