Today’s lineups (updated)

It was only a matter of time.

Rhyne Hughes will replace Pie and play left field in the fourth inning. Also in the fourth, Pedro Florimon will replace Izturis, Scott Moore will replace Tejada and Brandon Snyder will replace Atkins. Craig Tatum will replace Wieters in the third, Adam Donachie will move behind the plate in the fifth and Bernardo will do likewise in the seventh.

Andino will move to left field in the fourth. Also in the fourth, Jonathan Tucker will replace Markakis, Matt Angle will replace Jones, Michel Hernandez will replace Scott, Josh Bell will replace Wigginton, Miguel Abreu will replace Andino at second and Moeller will move to first base. Joseph will catch the seventh inning.

It’s supposed to be sunny and 67 degrees today, but there’s an 80 percent chance of thunderstorms tomorrow.

Hopefully, I’ll get another chance to stand outside the batting and pitching cages and soak up the atmosphere.

Brad Bergesen has another bullpen session today, but he’ll be outdoors this time. He threw mostly fastballs on Saturday, mixing in a few changeups at the end.

I asked Bergesen about his shoulder yesterday, then again a few minutes later when he returned to his locker. It’s become a running joke. He passed me later in the clubhouse and said, “My shoulder still feels good.”
