Yes, it can, and you have a choice when it comes to using a comma:
When to Use a Comma
Introductory elements often require a comma, but not always. Use a comma in the following cases:
-After an introductory clause. (Does the introductory element have a subject and verb of its own?)
-After a long introductory prepositional phrase or more than one introductory prepositional phrase. (Are there more than five words before the main clause?)
-After introductory verbal phrases, some appositive phrases, or absolute phrases.
-If there is a distinct pause. (When you read the sentence aloud, do you find your voice pausing a moment after the introductory element?)
-To avoid confusion. (Might a reader have to read the sentence more than once to make sense of it?)
