SARASOTA, Fla. -- The Orioles will travel to Fort Myers, Fla., today for a 1:05 p.m. game against the Minnesota Twins.
Right-hander Bud Norris will start for the Orioles. Other available pitchers include Zach Britton, Alfredo Aceves, Brad Brach, Tommy Hunter, Evan Meek and minor leaguers Chris Jones, Tim Alderson and Fabio Castillo.
The sun is finally out here at the Ed Smith Stadium complex, and the forecast seemed to be OK for Fort Myers. Getting these games in is critical because pitchers need innings.
Despite several recent rainouts -- a split-squad doubleheader was canceled last week and yesterday’s game was canceled after two innings -- the Orioles have been able to still get pitchers innings through minor league games or throwing innings in the covered batting cages.
Steve Lombardozzi start for the first time with the Orioles today. He's batting second and playing second base.
