Devil Rays update

Tampa Bay is stocked with young offensive talent but remains thin on pitching. Outfielder Delmon Young and infielder B.J. Upton, first-round picks in 2003 and 2002, respectively, are off to hot starts. So is Akinori Iwamura, signed in December from the Japanese Central League. Tampa Bay went 6-13 against the Orioles last season and is 12-25 against them the past two years. Bedard was 4-1 with a 2.75 ERA in six starts against Tampa Bay last season. The Orioles are 82-68 all time against the Devil Rays but only 38-38 at Tropicana Field.
