Orioles lineup for Rodriguez's home debut

Grayson Rodriguez makes his Camden Yards debut tonight, sans the gas cans in the stands.

Rodriguez remains in the rotation while Kyle Bradish is on the injured list with a bruised right foot, and he could stay depending on his results and how the Orioles could create room for him. Bradish is expected to begin an injury rehab assignment this week.

The Orioles called up Rodriguez to make Wednesday’s start in Texas, and he retired 13 of the last 15 batters after a two-run first inning. He kept the Rangers scoreless over the last four innings.

Adley Rutschman, who’s homered in back-to-back games for the first time in his career, is catching again tonight. James McCann is the designated hitter.

Austin Hays is leading off, with Cedric Mullins moved down to ninth.

Gunnar Henderson is playing third base and Ramón Urías is the second baseman.

Ryan Mountcastle, who remains at first base, has a hit in eight of 10 games.

A third consecutive left-hander is facing the Orioles tonight, with Kyle Muller taking the mound. The former second-round draft pick of the Braves was involved in a three-team trade with the Brewers in December.

Muller has a 4.68 ERA and 1.324 WHIP in 14 career games, with 32 walks but only four home runs surrendered in 59 2/3 innings. He’s started twice for Oakland this season and allowed three runs and eight hits with four walks and eight strikeouts in 10 2/3 innings.

The Orioles have never faced Muller, who’s held left-handed hitters to a .182/.321/.250 slash line.
