Adrian Sampson is scheduled to start for the Mariners, while Daniel Norris will take the mound for Detroit. Sampson (0-1, 7.71 ERA) took over Miley’s spot in the rotation and was rocked in his major league debut, giving up four runs on eight hits in a loss to Boston on Saturday.
Norris is getting a shot in the starting five as Detroit shuffles its rotation. Norris (0-0, 0.00) threw a scoreless inning of relief at Baltimore on May 12 in his only appearance this season. The 23-year-old is 4-6 with a 4.68 ERA in 11 starts at Triple-A Toledo on the year.
