Here are the season-opening starting rotaitons for the Orioles four full-season minor league clubs. The pitchers are listed as they will work from first through fifth. Those listed first are this evening's opening night starters. Norfolk: Chris Tillman, Jake Arrieta, Alfredo Simon, Troy Patton and Brandon Erbe. Bowie: Zach Britton, Steve Johnson, Chorye Spoone, Ryohei Tanaka and Tim Bascom. Frederick: Rick Zagone, Ryan O'Shea, Nate Nery, Cole McCurry and Oliver Drake. Delmarva: Ryan Berry, Jake Cowan, Matt Hobgood, Jesse Beal and Tony Butler. Frederick has placed pitcher Jake Renshaw on the DL as he recovers from elbow surgery. The Keys list P Brett Bordes, OF Jacob Julius and IF Matt Tucker on the inactive list to start the year and get down to the roster limit. Tillman starts at Triple-A tonight where he went 8-6, 2.70 last year for Norfolk. He is the youngest player on the Tides roster and the average age of the Triple-A rotation is 23.8 years. In nine career starts at Norfolk's Harbor Park, where he will pitch tonight, Tillman is 5-2, 1.82. The Delmarva Shorebirds begin their 15th season tonight and are six wins shy of 1,000 all time. By the way, you can check back on a story I posted a week ago with a guess on the minor league rotations and seemed to have most of them figured out.
