If the Seattle Mariners have their way, Bryce Miller, Logan Gilbert and George Kirby will anchor their rotation for years to come, perhaps even facing the New York Yankees in the American League playoffs.
So consider this week's three-game series between the teams in Seattle, which begins Monday, as potentially a sneak preview.
Miller (3-1, 1.15 ERA) is scheduled to start the series opener against New York's Domingo German (2-3, 3.75) in a matchup of right-handers.
Miller, the Mariners' top pitching prospect heading into the season, was called up earlier this month, just as Gilbert was in May 2021 and Kirby in May 2022.
While Miller will be facing the Yankees for the first time, the Mariners are somewhat familiar with German. He is 2-0 with a 3.60 ERA in three career appearances against them, including two starts.
German will be making his first start since May 16, having served a 10-game MLB suspension for excessive use of a grip-enhancing substance.
German told reporters he plans to use less rosin against the Mariners.
