ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. - One advantage to having a manager on Twitter is it’s easier to obtain the opening day lineup.
Not that Buck Showalter is going to be influenced by Joe Maddon’s social media skills.
Maddon just tweeted his lineup for Tuesday afternoon’s game against the Orioles at Tropicana Field.
Desmond Jennings CF
Sam Fuld RF
Ben Zobrist 2B
Evan Longoria 3B
Matt Joyce LF
Yunel Escobar SS
James Loney 1B
Jose Molina C
Kelly Johnson DH
David Price LHP
Former Oriole Luke Scott is on the 15-day disabled list with a strained right calf muscle.
Probably not the only damage he’s done to a calf over the years, but we’re talking about his leg here.
Stay tuned for the Orioles’ lineup, which most likely will be revealed in a few hours.
