Spring Training news & notes Day 14 (game rained out)

*The Orioles have set their  pitching rotation for the next few days, although things could be altered with today’s rainout in Bradenton.

Chris Tillman, who was scheduled to start today, will now start Wednesday night’s home game at 7 p.m. versus the Red Sox.  Zach Britton was originally scheduled to start that game with Jake Arrieta pitching in the afternoon road game against the Yankees. The rest of the rotation will be decided on by the team tonight and while some of it could be altered, here is what we were given earlier

Jair Jurrjens will start Thursday, Jason Hammel on Friday,  Wei-Yin Chen will pitch at Tampa on Saturday (along with Brian Matusz), Tillman will throw Sunday, March 3, with Miguel Gonzalez to follow him. Following March 4’s off day, Jurrjens will throw on the 5th.

*Jim Johnson and Darren O’Day are slated to make their first official outing of the season on March 6 against Team Spain. Johnson and O’Day were among several Orioles who threw in a simulated game of sorts in the covered batting cages this morning. Hammel, Chen and Gonzalez also threw there and the group, which are being slow-played this spring, all have yet to make an official spring appearance. Although that will change with the schedule above.

The only guy that leaves is Luis Ayala. The right-hander is not scheduled to throw right now and he will be brought along really slow given that he just pitched in the Mexican Winter League. Ayala has been a little under the weather lately, but manager Buck Showalter said he would have been slowed in spring regardless and it’s not a health issue.

*Tommy Hunter will throw 2 or 3 innings on Thursday against the Twins (after Jurrjens) with Kevin Gausman also scheduled to pitch.

*Tsuyoshi Wada will throw another bullpen on Wednesday, after coming in today and feeling good following his first bullpen session on Monday.
