Around the horn
It rained all night, although the sun is coming through now, so the Orioles workout could be limited depending on field conditions.
Manager Dave Trembley might limit what kind of work gets done today, in preparation for Jeremy Guthrie’s start against the Rays right here at Ed Smith Stadium tomorrow afternoon. First pitch is at 1:05 p.m. and the Orioles will face James Shields, with starter Matt Garza also expected to throw.
Brian Matusz will make his Grapefruit League debut Thursday against Rays right-hander Jeff Niemann.
The clubhouse was pretty quiet this morning which was to be expected. Not only is it the last day of practice before the games, but most of the team went to a party thrown for them by ESPN college basketball analyst Dick Vitale, who lives in nearby Bradenton.
Stay tuned for updates.
