While waiting for the lineup...

SARASOTA, Fla. - The Orioles haven’t posted their lineup and the players who made the trip to Fort Myers yesterday aren’t required to report until 11 a.m.

Nick Markakis has an ice pack on the back of his neck with his T-shirt over it, giving him a hunchback look. It’s menacing.

Tsuyoshi Wada will throw off a regular mound again today. His left arm continues to feel good - news that he replayed through his interpreter.

Daniel McCutchen will throw in the bullpen again today as he continues to make the adjustment to a lower arm slot, which was suggested to him by manager Buck Showalter and pitching coach Rick Adair. I’ll post his comments later this morning.

Steve Johnson tossed four scoreless innings in Tuesday’s intrasquad game. He gave up a couple hits - doubles by Wilson Betemit and Nolan Reimold. He also retired Reimold twice. He’s starting Sunday against the Minnesota Twins in Sarasota.

For the Rays:
Jennings CF
Johnson LF
Longoria 3B
Scott DH
Escobar SS
Joyce RF
Loney 1B
Roberts 2B
Lobaton C

Niemann RHP
