New, comments

According to local beat writers, the Orioles have announced their Wild Card starter pitcher.

Joy R. Absalon-US PRESSWIRE - Presswire

Veteran left handed pitcher Joe Saunders will take the mound to oppose Yu Darvish on Friday night. This likely means Craig Gentry will start in centerfield with Michael Young and Mike Napoli at some combination of 1B and DH and Geovany Soto catching.

For his career, Saunders is 0-6 with a 9.38 ERA at the Ballpark in Arlington.
