James Shields, Matt Garza Get the Nod for Opening Spring Training Game

New, 5 comments

Per Rays' Team Release:

STARTING PITCHERS FOR UPCOMING GRAPEFRUIT LEAGUE GAMES---

  • March 3 at Baltimore - RH James Shields or RH Matt Garza
  • March 4 vs. Baltimore - RH Jeff Niemann
  • March 5 at New York - LH David Price
  • March 6 vs. Boston - RH Andy Sonnanstine or RH Wade Davis
  • March 7 at Philadelphia - RH James Shields

Plan your schedules accordingly.  This appears to be lining Shields or Garza up for the Opening Day slot, although my money would be on Shields.

Update: The schedule has now been refined some.  Shields will start on March 3rd with Garza following, while Sonnanstine will start on March 6th with Davis following.
