Lee bats; Lee and Roberts expected to play Sunday

Orioles first baseman Derrek Lee (sore wrist) took his first spring at-bat moments ago against Philadelphia lefty Cole Hamels.

He came to the plate with runners on first and second and no outs in the first and fouled off his first pitch. He swung through a second and then took the next four to draw a walk and load the bases.

Orioles manager Buck Showalter said today that not only will Lee likely go to Port Charlotte tomorrow to play the Tampa Bay Rays, but Brian Roberts (back) is also expected to make the trip.
