Today’s intrasquad lineups include Nelson Cruz

SARASOTA, Fla. - The Orioles play their final intrasquad game today before diving into the Grapefruit League schedule. It’s scheduled to last four or five innings.

I should add weather permitting, because it’s overcast and rain could change those plans.

The lineups are in reverse alphabetical order today.

Nelson Cruz must have talked his way into the lineup. He’s starting in left field for the home team.

Cruz will make his Grapefruit League debut in Saturday’s home exhibition opener against the Blue Jays.
