Orioles vs. Mariners Game 1

Greetings from Camden Yards, where the Orioles will take on a Mariner team who they took three of four from last week. The O’s will add new reliever Andrew Miller yesterday, while Seattle is expected to have both new outfielders Austin Jackson (from Detroit) and Chris Denorfia (San Diego) start against lefty Wei-Yin Chen. The pair of right-handed hitters will help balance out Seattle’s slew of lefties that the O’s saw last week.

The Orioles will face all three lefty starters in Roenis Ellis tonight, followed by James Paxton and Hisashi Iwakuma.

In other news, Jim Johnson was released by Oakland on Friday which means he will become a free agent. I’m not sure if the O’s have interest yet, but it’s likely they would want him to be in the Minor Leagues first to get back on track. Given how well the bullpen is, and they have to make a move to add Miller today, I don’t see them straight up adding Johnson given his struggles. He obviously will look for a Major League job first.

Not to be critical, but Iwakuma is a righty pitcher. Keep up good work btw. MSgt Michael and go Birds.
