Today: The Orioles are coming to LECOM Field in Bradenton today. The game starts at 1:05 and will be carried by Root Sports (no radio). Doc Emrick will provide some color while Greg Brown calls the play-by-play. There’s also a morning “B” game against the Birds in Sarasota with Trevor Williams, Casey Sadler and Angel Sanchez getting the call to pitch in the six-inning contest.

Lineup (Starters “A” Game): Jordy Mercer SS, Alen Hanson 2B, David Freese 3B, John Jaso RF, Francisco Cervelli C, Eric Wood 1B, Austin Meadows CF, Danny Ortiz LF, Erich Weiss DH. JJ continues to get pasture time.

Pitchers: Drew Hutchison, Felipe Rivero, Tyler Webb and Wade LeBlanc. It’s getting to be rug-cutting time; only Felipe is a sure shot at breaking camp, tho Hutch has been quieting his nay-sayers.

Yesterday’s Game: Ivan Nova gave up his first run of the spring, but not to worry – he went five strong innings (four hits, five K, 65 pitches), the longest Piartes outing of the camp. It wasn’t enough as the Bucs fell 4-3. Eury Perez had a rough day in CF, botching a pair of plays that led to Bosox runs and put the cherry on top by being picked off while repping the tying run in the ninth. The Bucco RBIs were driven in by Jose Osuna (two hits), Jordan Luplow and Gift Ngoepe (three hits).


  • OF’er Barrett Barnes had to leave yesterday’s game with a hammy problem. He’s day-to-day. Won’t make much diff; he and C Christian Kelley were assigned to minor league camp while RHP Dovydas Neverauskas was placed on Indy’s roster.
