Orioles: Gibbons watch

Just got to Roger Dean Stadium, where we're hoping to see our old friend Jay Gibbons, who's competing for an outfield role with the Florida Marlins. Jay played in Venezuela this winter, but had to come early to be there for the birth of his new twins. Too early to gauge his chances of returning the majors this year.

The Orioles aren't exactly fielding their "A" lineup behind Koji. Ryan Freel will play right field, Jolbert Cabrera will be at shortstop, Felix Pie, just two days after arriving in camp, will start in center field.

Matt Wieters is in the lineup at DH, even though the Orioles are visiting a National League ballpark, but the DH rule has been loosened in spring training so that it can be used in any game by mutual agreement of the managers.
