Wednesday afternoon Orioles game thread: vs. Rays, 1:05

Opening Day is nine days away. Until then, it’s Grapefruit League time. The Orioles are on MASN this afternoon.

Bruce is pitching.

I'm psyched over at least one thing this year. Another one of my youth players starts his MLB career (hopefully). Logan Gilbert (Right Handed Pitcher) will be toeing the mound for the Mariners this season. The Mariners have brought him along slowly over the past couple years, which is great, and I hope Logan has a fantastic season this year. Fun facts. Logan and my son played on the same 12 year old team that visited Cooperstown several years ago. Logan didn't start pitching until he got to college. Knock them dead young man. Smile

54 years later, another Maryland native starts O's home opener

Zachary Silver

SARASOTA, Fla. -- Left-hander Bruce Zimmermann, a native of Ellicott City, Md., and a graduate of Loyola Blakefield High School in Towson, was asked this spring what it would mean to get the nod for the Orioles’ home opener, set for Monday against the Brewers.

Zimmermann said he couldn’t look that far ahead. He first needed to worry about making the team.

Sometimes you can accomplish two things at once.

O’s manager Brandon Hyde, as he announced the club’s Opening Day roster, revealed that Zimmermann not only cracked the rotation, but the Maryland native would get the responsibility of starting his first career home opener -- possibly the only honor more meaningful to him than getting the start on Opening Day itself.

“It adds a little extra something,” Hyde said. “It's extra special being from the area, he’s going to have a lot of friends and family there. But it's cool to give him the news. He's going to make the home opener -- that's a special moment.”

That is really cool. Talk about pressure. Eek I'm sure he'll handle it well. He's come a long way since you started this narrative.

That’s really fantastic!

“He first needed to worry about making the team.” Sounds like he’s worked on his interviews.

Good start, Bruce!
3 up, 3 down. 1 K in the first...
***
And another scoreless 2nd. Good slider for the K to end the inning.
***
Got into a bit of trouble in the third. Gave up a two out double and a couple of walks but got out of it without damage.
2-0 O's.
***
Another scoreless 4th!
Center fielder made a great play to save a run.
2-0 O's.
***
They brought in Baumann to start the 5th... so Bruce is done for the day.
Great day, Bruce!

Wow. From 5th round pick 5 years ago, traded organizations to opening day starter. That’s awesome. So cool. Glad the O’s had faith in him. I hope he stays healthy and gets the mega contract.
