KISSIMMEE, Fla. - Manager Buck Showalter didn’t post a lineup this morning and we’re still waiting for his arrival at Osceola County Stadium.
I’m looking at the travel roster and it doesn’t include Cesar Izturis. He isn’t making the trip, so forget what I wrote earlier about him starting. Change of plans.
Matt Wieters didn’t accompany the team here, either. He’s not hurt, but he may be excused from playing today. More on that later.
The Orioles added minor leaguers Xavier Avery, Greg Miclat and Brandon Waring.
The group of infielders who took the bus to Kissimmee include Ryan Adams, Robert Andino, Josh Bell, Nick Green, Brendan Harris, Joe Mahoney and Brandon Snyder. Outfielders Felix Pie, Nolan Reimold and Matt Angle also are here.
Zach Britton and Chris Tillman will throw today. Other pitchers on the travel roster include Wynn Pelzer, Armando Gabino, Mike Ballard, Alberto Castillo, Chris George and Chris Jakubauskas.
