Orioles lineup vs. Pirates

SARASOTA, Fla. - Jake Arrieta makes his final spring start today against a Pirates split squad in the Orioles' final road game.

Seems like a good time for manager Buck Showalter to confirm that Arrieta will be the opening day starter.

For the Orioles:
Endy Chavez CF
Nolan Reimold LF
J.J. Hardy SS
Nick Johnson DH
Wilson Betemit 3B
Chris Davis 1B
Ronny Paulino C
Jai Miller RF
Robert Andino 2B

Jake Arrieta RHP

Jim Johnson will pitch again today. He threw 24 pitches yesterday but still will make back-to-back appearances.

Also, Chris Tillman and Tommy Hunter will each throw five innings Sunday in a simulated game at Twin Lakes Park. Tillman still doesn't know whether the Orioles view him only as a starter or whether he could make the club in long relief.
