SARASOTA, Fla. (AP) — Jason Hammel is set to start the Baltimore Orioles’ opener at Tampa Bay.
Hammel, who threw five innings in a minor league game Wednesday, is scheduled to start against the Rays’ David Price on Tuesday in St. Petersburg, Fla.
Hammel was 8-6 with a 3.43 ERA for the Orioles last season, and pitched Games 1 and 5 in the American League Divisional Series against New York.
He’ll be followed in the Orioles’ rotation by Wei-Yin Chen and Miguel Gonzalez.
