Orioles conduct last full-squad workout before Grapefruit League opens

The Baltimore Sun

SARASOTA, Fla. -- The Orioles will conduct their final full workout this morning at the Ed Smith Stadium complex before the Grapefruit League season starts.

Tomorrow, the Orioles open the spring schedule with a home game against the Minnesota Twins at Ed Smith Stadium. Most of the starters will take batting practice on the stadium field, which is out of the ordinary.

Other than that, it’s one more day of full-squad PFP drills and other team defense drills for pitchers.

As reported yesterday, Zach Britton will start tomorrow’s opener and be followed by Jake Arrieta. We should find out the rest of tomorrow’s pitching lineup later today.

Left-hander Tsuyoshi Wada -- who is rehabbing from Tommy John surgery -- is expected to throw a third formal pen session off a half mound today. If all goes well, he's slated to go to a full mound on Monday.
