Orioles @Pirates/ Pirates @ Rays 2/28/2011 Split Squad

Two games today, each at 1:03.

First we'll go with the Orioles. This is the first time John Russell will see his old team and he will be acting as 3B coach.

1. Jose Tabata LF
2. Josh Rodriguez
3. Andrew McCutchen CF
4. Pedro Alvarez 3B
5. Lyle Overbay 1B
6. Garrett Jones RF
7. Ryan Doumit DH
8. Chase d'Arnaud 2B
9. Jason Jaramillo C

Paul Maholm
Jeff Karstens
Tyler Yates
Jeff Locke
Mike Crotta
Justin Wilson
Cesar Valdez

I expect Maholm and Karstens to go two, and the rest one. Some decent prospects in that lineup. This is probably the varsity.

Now onto the Rays. The Pirates are looking to take this series after each team split the first two.

1. Gorkys Hernandez CF
2. Ronny Cedeno SS
3. Neil Walker 2B
4. Matt Diaz RF
5. Joshua Fields 3B
6. Garrett Atkins 1B
7. Alex Presley LF
8. Chris Snyder DH
9. Dustin Brown C

Joshua Fields sure is getting a look. This is the all tweener team. Neil Walker must feel odd in that group.

Bryan Morris
Fernando Nieve
Sean Gallagher
Aaron Thompson
Kyle McPherson

Joe Beimel who left the field before the game started and missed his scheduled opportunity with elbow soreness has no damage and is expected to be fine.
