Spencer Turnbull and Stephen Gonsalves spent most of the season moving their way through the minor league chain. With the season winding down, those young pitchers are scheduled to oppose each other at the highest level.
They will take the mound in a Wednesday matinee at Detroit's Comerica Park as the Tigers and Minnesota Twins close out a three-game series.
Turnbull, a 26-year-old right-hander, made his major league debut at Cleveland on Friday when he pitched an inning of scoreless relief. That was a new experience in more ways than one for Turnbull, who started all 90 of career minor league appearances.
