TIME/TV: 7:05 p.m., not on television

WEATHER: Sunny skies right now. Shouldn’t be a any sort of weather issues when night falls.


ON THE LINE: This is Mitre’s first spring start after pitching twice out of the bullpen. He’s being looked at as a possible back-of-the-rotation starter, though he could just as easily slide back into his long-relief role… The Yankees are not bringing any relievers who are expected to break camp on the major league roster.

OUT OF THE BULLPEN FOR THE YANKEES: Likely Triple-A starters Adam Warren and D.J. Mitchell will be the first two out of the pen for the Yankees. Andy Sisco and Ryan Pope are also available.

BULLPEN FOR THE ORIOLES: RHP Kevin Gregg, RHP Jeremy Accardo, RHP David Riske and LHP Clay Rapada

UPDATE, 7:39 p.m.: Another monster throw from Greg Golson, this time on the fly from center field to home plate to get Mark Reynolds trying to score from second on a single. Hard to beat last year’s throw against Tampa Bay, but this one was pretty impressive. Melky Mesa started bowing to him from right field.

UPDATE, 8:06 p.m.: Mitre went three scoreless, allowing three hits and striking out three. He threw 47 pitches, 32 for strikes.

UPDATE, 9:08 p.m.: Hard to say much about a scoreless spring training game. Just finished talking to Sergio Mitre who thought he was better in his previous outing. He said he felt like he was pushing the ball through his early innings, but he settled in at the end and started pitching much better.
