2020 MLB postseason debuts made

Any player will tell you that the best feeling is finally making that dreaded top league/senior debut in the sport that he/she loves.

With the 2020 MLB season not starting as yet, the Division series games are already in action and several major debuts have been made. The postseason games have only seen five debuts made on the big league stage in the modern era.

A new players bonus is also provided to players when they register and before they proceed to explore the different MLB markets among other top US sports. Below are the 2020 three MLB Division Series debutants;

Ryan Weathers - San Diego Pandres

Tuesday night, October 6, will remain a memorable day for 20-year-old Ryan weathers who pitched for the first time in Padres colors against Los Angeles Dodgers in Game 1 to make his appearance in relief. His debut made him the second-youngest player after Royals' Adalberto Mondesi to make his MLB postseason debut.

Speaking after the game, Jayce Tingler, San Diego manager, said that he was ‘confident' before the game that they would use Ryan in the game. He went on to praise his impressive debut saying, ‘…how he performed was everything we could have asked for.' The manager went on to state that the debutant was ‘confident, threw strikes, used all his pitches, and pounded the zone.'

Alex Kirilloff - Minnesota Twins

Alex Kirilloff is another of the three who made his senior debut for the Minnesota Twins as he started Game 2. His debut made him the first player in the MLB history to make a debut by starting a game in the playoffs. The 22-year-old debuted against the Houston Astros and was playing right field. The Twins have not done well in the postseason and are on a 17-game losing streak that dates way back to the year 2004. Game 1 didn't make it easier after suffering a 4-1 loss to Houston Astros (best-of-three Wild Card series). But with the left-handed hitter now in their fold, perhaps they can correct the streak.

Speaking on his debut, Rocco Baldelli, Minnesota Twins manager, spoke highly of the debutant saying that Alex was a ‘talented' ballplayer and that he thought highly of his ability as a player and person.

Shane McClanahan - Tampa Bay Rays

Shane is the latest Tampa Bay player to make his senior debut on Game 1 against the New York Yankees in the AL Division Series. He came from the bench shortly after the Yankees took a 9-3 lead and went on to get a third out with no more scores.

Charlie Morton, Tampa Bay right-handler, said that the ‘big' deficit that was hard to come back from helped to ‘ease' the mind of the new left-handler. For Shane, it was a dream fulfilled even though not in the best circumstances. Speaking after his debut, Shane said that one must ‘appreciate the small things' with everything happening in the world.
