SARASOTA, Fla. – The Orioles play their last spring road game tonight, with Tyler Wells starting against the Pirates in Bradenton and Ramón Urías hoping to stay in the lineup after twice being scratched with a bruised right thumb.
Urías is starting at second base and batting second behind third baseman Terrin Vavra.
“I feel like I’m good to go,” he said this afternoon.
Urías tested the hand yesterday by hitting in the cage and taking ground balls.
“Whenever I threw the baseball and it hit my fingers, it was still too sensitive,” he said. “I shouldn’t have an issue tonight.”
Jordan Westburg remains in major league camp and is playing shortstop. Kyle Stowers is in left field.
DL Hall pitches tonight behind Wells, and the Orioles want to stretch him to three innings.
