Left-handed pitcher Dana Eveland, who was designated for assignment last week, cleared waivers and accepted his outright assignment to Triple-A Norfolk, where he will likely be a member of the Tides' starting rotation. … Left-hander Troy Patton, one of the final players to make the roster out of camp, said he's unsure of his bullpen role. He's the team's sole lefty reliever. … Showalter didn't reveal his starting lineup for Friday's opener. "The intrigue, I know, is killing you," he told reporters. I don't think it's keeping anybody up at night." Showalter added that he feels comfortable with his choices in the leadoff and cleanup spots, but added there might be some "unconventional" options there down the road. … One of Showalter's toughest moves of the spring was optioning left-hander , who allowed just two earned runs in 13 1/3 innings this spring, to Triple-A Norfolk on Wednesday. "He'll be back in some form," Showalter said. "He had a great spring, and we're lucky to have him and he's unlucky to have an option."
