Orioles and Blue Jays lineups

SARASOTA, Fla. – Adam Frazier is leading off tonight and playing second base, and Kyle Stowers is batting third and starting in right field, as the Orioles return from their off-day to host the Blue Jays.

Austin Hays is in center field and batting cleanup. Franchy Cordero is in left field.

Jorge Mateo is starting at shortstop.

Left-hander Cole Irvin makes his third start. He’s allowed one run in five innings, and he’s expected to work through the fourth tonight if his pitch count permits it.

Nick Vespi will make his second spring appearance tonight.

Ryan O’Hearn said the MRI on his right knee came back clean and he’s getting closer to a return. O’Hearn injured the knee Saturday while playing the outfield in Dunedin, but he did some pool sprints today and ran on the treadmill.

Lewin Díaz, also competing for the backup job at first base, said via translator Brandon Quinones that his left shoulder feels better and he plans on taking batting practice Friday morning.
