Tillman, Gausman to share 'B' game duties

SARASOTA, Fla. -- Chris Tillman and Kevin Gausman will pitch in a "B" game in Sarasota against the Pirates on Thursday, with Yovani Gallardo slated to make his first spring start Wednesday at the Phillies.

Tillman, who has been slowed this spring by a hip flexor injury, will be pitching in his first game situation, and he is expected to stay in for around two innings and 40 pitches. This will be Gausman's second spring outing, and he'll probably go three innings. Tyler Wilson will start Thursday's regular home game for the Orioles.

The Orioles should know by Wednesday whether outfielder Jimmy Paredes has a hairline fracture in his left wrist. Orioles manager Buck Showalter said they are going to "re-image" the area to determine if Paredes will be out four to six weeks (fracture) instead of the initial one to two.
