ARLINGTON, Texas (KTRE) - Former Central Heights Blue Devil and Baltimore Orioles prospect Grayson Rodriguez will be making his long-awaited Major League debut in Arlington Wednesday afternoon.

According to MLB.com, Rodriguez will start the series finale against the Texas Rangers at Glob Life Field. First pitch is at 1:15 p.m.

Rodriguez’s debut has been anticipated for at least a year, as he well on his way to a call-up in 2022 before a lat injury in June.

According to MLB.com, Rodriguez was called up Wednesday after starting pitcher Kyle Bradish was injured on Monday. This created a domino effect and a need for a starter on Wednesday.

Rodriguez won a state championship with Central Heights in 2017.
