O's game with Jays canceled for rain

O's game with Jays canceled for rain

DUNEDIN, Fla. -- Sunday afternoon's Blue Jays-Orioles Spring Training game was canceled due to inclement weather. Originally scheduled for a 1:05 p.m. ET start, the game was delayed for 22 minutes before officially being called off. No makeup contest will be played.

Sunday's starter Jeremy Guthrie will now pitch Monday's game against the New York Yankees live on MLB.TV. That game is scheduled to begin at 7:05 p.m. at Ed Smith Stadium, and Guthrie will be opposed by right-hander Javier Vazquez.

Orioles manager Dave Trembley planned on talking with pitching coach Rick Kranitz later on Sunday to work out a pitching schedule that would keep Sunday's relievers -- a list that included Jim Johnson and Matt Albers -- on track to get their work in.

Lefty Brian Matusz will pitch in the team's Minor League game on Monday at the back fields of Ed Smith Stadium. That contest is a camp day, which means the Double-A and Triple-A squads will play against each other.

Infielder Brian Roberts was scheduled to make his second spring start on Sunday, and Trembley said the original plan was for the second baseman to play back-to-back games Sunday and Monday. Now, Roberts will start Monday night's game, with Tuesday's afternoon's contest a possibility.

Roberts has been slowed by a herniated disc in his lower back suffered during offseason workouts in Arizona, and the Orioles are hoping to get their leadoff hitter 25-30 spring at-bats to have Roberts ready for April 6's Opening Day.
