Oritz and Miggi catch up;Tejada to play Monday as well
That’s Red Sox slugger David Ortiz and Orioles third baseman Miguel Tejada hugging on the field pregame. Oritz joked with Tejada that the pair “aren’t getting any younger. At least they are still having fun. Also pictured: Felix Pie.
Manager Dave Trembley said pregame today that he will start to play some of the regular position players back-to-back, with Tejada being one of those guys. The former shortstop has been putting in extra early work every day with infield coach Juan Samuel, but got a morning off on Sunday. Tejada is batting 4th in the Orioles lineup today, and will play again on Monday.
Trembley said not every expected starter will go back to back, and although he declined to name specifically, you would have to assume Felix Pie and Nolan Reimold won’t go back-to-back just yet. Center fielder Adam Jones will also be one of Sunday’s starters that will play on Monday.
