Orioles vs. Fla Southern

*Matt Lindstrom came in today feeling good physically and he will pitch in Tuesday’s game against the State College of Florida.

*Manager Buck Showalter, sensing reporters’ thinning patience, agreed to officially name an Opening Day starter today. The Orioles and the Angels are the lone remaining clubs to do so.

*Showalter said no roster cuts are expected today, with  the waiver wire situation making the situation fluid.

Here’s the O’s lineup today against Florida Southern…

Nolan Reimold LF
Nick Markakis DH
J.J. Hardy SS
Adam Jones CF
Matt Wieters C
Mark Reynolds 3B
Chris Davis 1B
Robert Andino 2B
Ryan Flaherty RF

Jim Johnson will start followed by Troy Patton in a game pitched by the Orioles’ bullpen.


I was looking over the box score for Sunday’s game and I noticed an unfamiliar name – Stuart Pomeranz. I got curious so I started trying to do some digging about him. Looks like the Orioles wanted to get a good look at him because he pitched in 8 games this spring. Not too shabby in the stats dept. – 1.08 ERA, had a save in 2 opportunities, 8.1 innings , 8 hits allowed but only 1 run, 1 walk – 5 strikeouts. I then tried to find him on one of the teams minor league rosters but couldn’t. Is he still unassigned to a minor league club but signed to a minor league contract for 2012? If you can find anything out, I and my curiousity would greatly appreciate it.

He will be assigned to Triple-A most likely. I know the O’s brass were impressed with him, which you can tell by how often he pitched despite not being in big league camp. Should be interesting to watch, he’s had some tough battles with alcohol but appears to be on the right path. –Britt

Hopefully he has his act together and can continue in a positive direction in both his life and career. Thank you very much for the info – its greatly appreciated.
