The first-place Tampa Bay Rays are flying high after demolishing the Cincinnati Reds in 10-0 fashion on Tuesday. There has been no shortage of offense for this year's Rays club, who have now homered in 18 consecutive games to start the year, two off from the all-time record. Taylor Walls had the best performance of his career (4-for-5, 4 runs scored, 3B, 2 HR, 4 RBI) while top prospect Taj Bradley slammed the door on the mound. Through and through, this team is red-hot, and will be faced with a new challenge today in the form of a pitcher making his big league debut.

Rays vs. Reds, probable starting pitchers, April 19

  • Drew Rasmussen will make the fourth start of his 2023 season and will look to continue his strong stretch of play to begin the year. In 17.1 innings, the four-year veteran has a 2.60 ERA and 2.56 FIP, striking out 19 and walking just four along the way. With news of Jeffrey Springs needing Tommy John Surgery, Rasmussen will become one of the players the club leans on.
  • Opposing Rasmussen on the mound will be 25-year-old Levi Stoudt, who is making his big league debut for the Reds. Stoudt, the No. 14 prospect in the Reds' system (per MLB.com's pre-season rankings), has historically been a high-strikeout pitcher who excels at keeping the ball in the ballpark. He gives the Reds yet another young, promising starting pitcher that could slot into their long-term rotation picture starting today.
