March 06, 2012|By Eduardo A. Encina | The Baltimore Sun

SARASOTA, Fla. — The Orioles are traveling to Fort Myers today to face the Red Sox, but some important stuff is going on this morning here at the Ed Smith Stadium Complex.

Pitchers Tommy Hunter, Zach Britton and Jim Johnson will all throw in a two-inning simulated game on the back fields here. What happens here might be more important than what's going on down south.

The Orioles will send essentially the same lineup as they did yesterday afternoon on the road against the Rays.

Here are the lineups:


Chavez RF
Adams 2B
N. Johnson DH
Betemit LF
Mahoney 1B
Teagarden C
Flaherty SS
Bell 3B
Avery CF
Eveland LHP

Red Sox

Ellsbury CF
Pedroia 2B
Gonzalez 1B
Lavarnway C
Ross RF
Punto DH
Hassan LF
Middlebrooks 3B
Aviles SS
Bard RHP
