Spring training 3/27 news & notes (updated)

*Wei-Yin Chen and Miguel Gonzalez will pitch the second and third games of the season, with Jason Hamel expected to officially be named the Opening Day starter later this afternoon.

Hammel threw five innings in a Minor League game today.

*Steve Johnson is still dealing with soreness –which is more in his right lat area than lower back– and the right-hander doesn’t have a timetable to get back throwing. Johnson, who tried to throw yesterday, is still taking things day by day and said he first felt discomfort in the bullpen he threw in advance of Friday’s start.

*’The Orioles have announced details for their exhibition game against the State College of Florida, Manatee-Sarasota (SCF) Manatees, this Friday, March 29 at 2 p.m. at Ed Smith Stadium.

Entry to the game is free.  Reserved tickets for seating near the SCF dugout are $5. Proceeds will benefit SCF Manatees Athletics to support scholarships and athletic department operations.

Free parking will be available in the East Lot.

Not trying to be a pest, but did you take another look and realize that the Orioles need a 5th starter on April 6th, April 14th, and April 20th?

Right now, it’s irrelevant until they name a roster for Opening Day. But they could have a spot starter out of the ‘pen to cover them for a while. –Britt

What’s the Yankee lineup look like tonight?

will post it when I get it. –Britt
