Orioles and Red Sox lineups (updated)

SARASOTA, Fla. - The Orioles will try to stay unbeaten in the Grapefruit League with today's 1:05 p.m. game against the Red Sox in Fort Myers.

Brian Matusz will start today and fly to Philadelphia Monday morning to have a wart removed from the middle finger on his left hand. He will return to camp later that night.

Update: Matusz said he's delaying his trip because of the pending storm up north. Now he must wait on the weather and the doctor's availability.

He's already stated that it doesn't affect him pitching, so I guess there's no rush.
