Orioles host Phillies this afternoon at Ed Smith

The Orioles will host a Phillies split-squad team this afternoon at Ed Smith Stadium.

Right-hander Miguel Gonzalez will make his first spring apparance for the Orioles, following starter Chris Tillman. He threw an indoor bullpen session with hitters tracking on Tuesday, and since he threw 35 pitches then, he will likely go at least two innings today against the Phillies, pitch count permitting.

Tillman, making his second spring start today, allowed one hit and issued two walks while striking out one in his first start against Boston on Wednesday night.

Center fielder Adam Jones has left for Arizona to play for the United States in the WBC, so Nate McLouth will play center field and lead off for the Orioles today. Second baseman Brian Roberts will hit second.

No Nolan Reimold in the lineup. Trayvon Robinson gets the start in left.

Right-handed reliever Pedro Strop wasn’t listed on today’s lineup of pitchers. He said Saturday that he would pitch in Sunday’s game before leaving for the World Baseball Classic. He’s pitching for the Dominican Republic.

Chris Robinson, the starting catcher for Canada in the WBC, is also leaving after this morning’s workout.

The team will have an off-day tomorrow and camp will be closed to the media. Orioles manager Buck Showalter will be flying back to Baltimore to receive The Baltimore Sun’s Marylander of the Year award. More on that later.

Here are the starting lineups for both teams:
