Detroit Tigers game live updates vs. Baltimore Orioles in spring training exhibition
Hernández said he “didn’t pay attention” to the velocity but noted it was his first outing after a year off — he opted out of the 2020 season due to concerns over COVID-19. But he said he was happy to pitch again after such a long layoff and is focused more on pitching in the zone than throwing harder. He acknowledged that he started rushing to the plate and flying open when he issued two walks on nine pitches in the second inning.
Michael Fulmer threw two scoreless innings in his first start of spring training and the Detroit Tigers beat the Baltimore Orioles 6-5 Saturday night. Fulmer's debut was pushed back several days after leaving camp temporarily due to the birth of his second child. After the game, Fulmer said he was pleased with his first start, which also included a strikeout and no walks.
