Some quick Orioles notes and Friday's lineup

March 08, 2013|By Dan Connolly | The Baltimore Sun

Here’s the Orioles’ lineup for tonight’s game against the Pittsburgh Pirates in Bradenton. It’s not exactly representative of the Opening Day lineup we are expecting:

Alexi Casilla 6, Ryan Flaherty 4, Wilson Betemit 5, Jason Pridie DH, Travis Ishikawa 3, Trayvon Robinson 7, Chris Dickerson 9, Jose Gil 2, Xavier Avery 8, Wei-Yin Chen 1.

Also pitching for the Orioles will be Brian Matusz, Tommy Hunter, Daniel Schlereth and Troy Patton.

A couple quick notes:

** Manny Machado, who had a root canal yesterday, was back in the clubhouse feeling good. Said the 90-minute procedure wasn’t too close to the nerve, so it didn’t hurt too badly. He’ll do his regular routine today.

** Taylor Teagarden (back) continues to improve. He’ll do some more baseball activities today and hopes to get in a game soon.
