Full slate for Baltimore's pitchers this weekend

SARASOTA, Fla. -- The Orioles' pitchers will get plenty of work this weekend, as the club will play a pair of games in addition to its scheduled Grapefruit League contests.

On Saturday, the Orioles will play a 2 p.m. ET game open to the public on the back fields of Ed Smith Stadium complex against the Puerto Rico development team. Chris Tillman and Tommy Hunter will pitch in that game.

Saturday's pitching schedule against the Rays (1:05 p.m. ET on MLB.TV) includes: Brian Matusz -- who is starting work on his changeup -- along with Darren O'Day, Wesley Wright, Tim Berry and Logan Verrett. Mike Wright and Steve Johnson are among those slated to face the Pirates in Bradenton, Fla., on Sunday at 1:05 p.m. ET on MLB.TV, with Wei-Yin Chen getting the start.

A "B" game will be played at 10 a.m. on Sunday, but it will not be open to the public. Zach Britton and Kevin Gausman will pitch in that game, with Britton possibly going multiple innings.
