The Baltimore Orioles learned some tough news on Tuesday when it was announced that right-hander Kyle Bradish would be placed on the 15-day injured list.

Bradish is injured in his right leg.

Luckily, the Orioles have a replacement ready, and it’s one fans have been eager to see for some time.

Top pitching prospect Grayson Rodriguez has been called up and will start Wednesday against the Texas Rangers.

Rodriguez is highly praised and is someone the Orioles count heavily on.

On Twitter, the Orioles posted an urgent promotional video to prepare fans for Rodriguez’s long-awaited MLB debut.

The wait is officially over.

Rodriguez is set to make his highly anticipated MLB debut on Wednesday as the Orioles face off against the Rangers.

The youth movement continues in Baltimore.

Last season, Adley Rutschman was called up to the big leagues and found himself in the conversation for the American League Rookie of the Year Award.

At the end of the season, Gunnar Henderson was called up.

Henderson is now an important part of the youth movement.

Now is Rodriguez’s time to shine.

The 23-year-old has impressed at the minor league level.

Last year, Rodriguez went 6–2 with a 2.62 ERA in 17 starts and 75.2 innings of work.

He walked just 28 batters, scored 109 runs, and held opponents to a -176 batting average.

Rodriguez made one start this season at Triple-A Norfolk.

In that start, he gave up two runs in four innings of work.
