Flaherty at third, Gonzalez on hill for Orioles at Red Sox

FORT MYERS, Fla. - In this afternoon's split-squad game against the Red Sox, Ryan Flaherty continues to get his reps at third base in preparation for what will likely be the starting role there while Manny Machado is out.

Jemile Weeks gets a shot at leading off for the Orioles while playing second base, with David Lough in left and batting second.

Miguel Gonzalez makes his final start of what has been a strong spring. He enters today's game with a 2.35 ERA in five appearances, having allowed four runs in 15 1/3 innings while striking out eight and walking just one.

Buck Britton will be on the bench for both split-squad games. He also pulled double duty last spring.
