FORT MYERS, Fla. - Today’s game against the Twins at Hammond Stadium is another instant replay game.
The Orioles may have challenged a call here during their last visit, but a replay wasn’t available to them.
That qualifies as a flaw in the system.
Saturday afternoon’s game against the Yankees at Ed Smith Stadium will air at 1:05 p.m. on MASN. The Orioles will start Chris Tillman, while New York counters with left-hander Vidal Nuno.
Miguel Gonzalez, Alfredo Aceves, Steve Johnson and Brad Brach will pitch Sunday against the Blue Jays in Dunedin. Todd Redmond, who was in camp with the Orioles last spring, will start for Toronto.
Brian Matusz and Kevin Gausman will pitch against the Phillies in Monday’s split-squad game in Clearwater. Kyle Kendrick will start for Philadelphia.
In the nighttime portion, Ubaldo Jimenez will oppose the Twins’ Kevin Correia at 7:05 p.m. at Ed Smith Stadium, a game that also will air on MASN.
Here’s today’s lineup for the Twins:
Alex Presley CF
Kurt Suzuki C
Joe Mauer 1B
Josh Willingham LF
Trevor Plouffe 3B
Chris Parmelee DH
Darin Mastroianni RF
Eduardo Escobar 2B
Jason Bartlett SS
Mike Pelfrey RHP
Update: The Orioles have shuffled their lineup, scratching Alexi Casilla because of a hyperextended left knee.
As a result, Jonathan Schoop has been inserted at shortstop with Quintin Berry and Michael Almanzar each moved down a spot in the order.
Here’s the Orioles’ new lineup:
David Lough LF
Jemile Weeks 2B
Henry Urrutia RF
Steve Pearce 1B
Steve Clevenger C
Nolan Reimold DH
Jonathan Schoop SS
Quintin Berry CF
Michael Almanzar 3B
