Pie says he’s OK (updated twice)

The lineup that’s posted in the clubhouse has Robert Andino playing shortstop, but the sheet that’s been distributed lists Cesar Izturis. More on that later.

Update: Izturis has been scratched with the flu.

Felix Pie expects to start tomorrow’s game against the Detroit Tigers in Lakeland after “stretching” his quad yesterday while legging out a triple.

“It’s good,” he said. “I’m ready to go.”

Pie admitted that he was “a little scared,” but that feeling has passed.

“I’m not worried because I don’t feel any pain,” he said. “I feel much, much better this morning. I can walk normal.”

Pie hasn’t tried to run. That’ll be the real test.

We’re watching Pie shag fly balls during batting practice and he’s moving as if nothing is wrong with his leg.
