SARASOTA, Fla. -- After being rained out Thursday, the Orioles will face the Phillies this afternoon at Ed Smith Stadium.
We will have an interesting pitching matchup, as Ubaldo Jimenez, who signed a four-year, $50-million deal with the Orioles last month, will face A.J. Burnett, who was one of the club's top offseason targets.
How's that for spring training intrigue?
Right-hander Miguel Gonzalez, who was scheduled to start Thursday, will pitch in relief to get his work in.
Brian Matusz, Tim Berry, Kelvin De La Cruz, Alfredo Aceves and Brock Huntzinger are also scheduled to pitch for the Orioles.
