O's: The first lineup

Here's the Orioles lineup that will face Tampa Bay Rays starter James Shields in the exhibition opener today at Ed Smith Stadium. Notably absent is left fielder Nolan Reimold, who is being brought along slowly and, of course, Brian Roberts.

Adam Jones CF

Cesar Izturis SS

Nick Markakis RF

Miguel Tejada 3B

Matt Wieters C

Luke Scott LF

Garrett Atkins 1B

Josh Bell DH

Justin Turner 2B

Jeremy Guthrie RHP

I'm a little surprised that Felix Pie is not in left field. I'll have to ask Dave Trembley if there's something going on there that we don't know about. Might just be the way Dave is splitting up the playing time, and we'll see Pie on the road trip tomorrow.
