Detroit Tigers pitcher Reese Olson had a loud MLB debut.
The Detroit Tigers called up Reese Olson to make his first big league start on Friday. The right-handed pitcher was tasked with facing the Chicago White Sox in his first career start, and he certainly did not disappoint.
Olson threw 5.0 innings, allowing just two hits, one walk, and two earned runs while punching out six opposing hitters. An exceptional start for the Detroit Tigers starter, who held the White Sox hitless for five innings before things got brewing in the sixth.
It was an impeccable outing for the 23-year-old, who's a former high school draftee of the Brewers that the Tigers acquired in the Daniel Norris trade from 2021. Olson has latched on well with the Tigers and carved out a road to Detroit, earning his way to the top.
The Tigers opted to bring up Olson amid some injuries and roster shuffle during this week, and he made his big league debut with a pretty loud start. But on top of the statistics themselves, there was a lot to be excited about from Olson.
It was a great big league debut, and the Tigers faithful should be looking forward to the next time that Olson takes the mound because there's a chance he could be wearing a Tigers uniform more often than not moving forward.
That being said, let's dive into Olson's first big league start and what made it such a loud performance, and why Tigers fans should be excited for him to continue to be a part of this roster for the time being.
