Let's Play Two

Hey, the days of the Sunday twinbill are long gone, but the spring split games kinda fill the void. The Bucs take on the Orioles and Twins today, both 1:05 games on the road. The Baltimore contest will be broadcast by The Fan 93.7, but no radio for the Twins match, so you'll have to fire up the PC to follow the boys there.

Gerritt Cole will continue his camp preview against Baltimore. Jonathan Sanchez, badly in need of a decent outing, gets the call against the Twins. He and the dish haven't been on speaking terms this spring; he's walked seven in just 3-1/3 innings. In fact, Hurdle and the guys are going to the Twins game to evaluate some players, with cuts coming up at the start of the week, and we'd imagine he's one they'll be looking hard at.

Russell Martin is scheduled to get behind the plate today, and Brandon Inge is making his first appearance in the field at third.

(Sorry, early stuff to do today, so it's a truncated pre-game; we should be home in time to get you the post-games notes.)
