BALTIMORE: HITTING: The leadoff spot is 2B BRIAN ROBERTS' if he can stay on the field. His recent injury history is very troubling, though his talent makes him a risk worth taking. 2B ROBERT ANDINO and 2B RYAN ADAMS would compete for time if Roberts is out. The O's best hitter last year was arguably SS J.J. HARDY. He was healthy for the first time in years and flexed his legit 30-HR power. If Roberts and Hardy stay healthy, OF NICK MARKAKIS will likely hit third and see an increase in RBI chances. OF ADAM JONES seems to have the highest ceiling of any Baltimore hitter. 3B MARK REYNOLDS will probably end up at 1B. His horrendous average cancels out some of his 40-HR potential. OF NOLAN REIMOLD revived his MLB career with an impressive end of the season. He's got a shot to start in left. 1B CHRIS DAVIS is a candidate to start at first, third or DH as sort of a Junior Mark Reynolds. C MATT WIETERS is already one of the best two-way backstops in baseball at age 25.

STARTING PITCHING: WEI-YIN CHEN pitched well enough in Japan (2.48 ERA, 1.06 WHIP in past four seasons) to become the de-facto ace of this horrible pitching staff. JAKE ARRIETA is a mediocre talent, but is good enough to secure a spot as a Baltimore starter. JASON HAMMEL hopes the switch from Coors Field will help lower his career ERA of 4.99. The highest-risk, highest-potential O's pitcher may be BRIAN MATUSZ. His 2011 line is frightening (10.69 ERA, 2.11 WHIP), but he has the raw skills and pitch repertoire to turn it around. TOMMY HUNTER came over from Texas midseason and should round out the rotation.
RELIEF PITCHING: There was talk of JIM JOHNSON being converted into a starter, but he'll open the season as the team's closer. Johnson established himself as the O's best option to close after going 7-for-7 in that role last September. KEVIN GREGG would step in as the ninth-inning man if Johnson falters. He was unstable in that role last year. Gregg is a trade candidate this midseason, in which case he'd probably end up a set-up man elsewhere. Flame-throwing MATT LINDSTROM is a darkhorse for saves. He saved 23 games for Houston in 2010 before being used as a set-up man in Colorado last year. TSUYOSHI WADA brings his finesse game from Japan. He's a heady hurler who hides the ball well, but he's in for a rude awakening in the A.L. East. BRAD BERGESEN and CHRIS JAKUBAUSKAS are long relievers who may get bumped into the rotation if the young Baltimore SPs struggle again.
LA ANGELS: HITTING: SS ERICK AYBAR will likely get another crack at the leadoff spot by default. DH/OF BOBBY ABREU can still draw walks and run a little. 2B HOWIE KENDRICK traded batting average for more power last year. He's still one of baseball's better middle infield bats. 1B ALBERT PUJOLS should benefit from DH-ing a couple of times a year. OF TORII HUNTER is fading fast and may not provide middle-of-the-order power. OF VERNON WELLS has a better chance than Hunter to bounce back, and the Angels have to be patient considering his monster contract. MARK TRUMBO will get a look at 3B. If he can't get it done, ALBERTO CALLASPO would start and Trumbo would back-up first and DH. Speedy OF PETER BOURJOS will start in left, and top prospect MIKE TROUT will soon replace free agents-to-be Abreu or Hunter. KENDRYS MORALES could DH regularly if his ankle is healthy. CHRIS IANNETTA is no Mike Napoli, but he's a monster upgrade over Jeff Mathis.
STARTING PITCHING: JERED WEAVER had a lot of things go right in 2011, and it's not hard to picture him as a Cy Young candidate again. But he faded late in the year, and may not belong in the upper echelon or pitchers. A cutter has led to DAN HAREN's rebirth. He's right there with Weaver, just a step behind the elite arms. C.J. WILSON may not get the same run support, but he should benefit from getting out of hitter-friendly Arlington; he had a 2.31 road ERA last year. ERVIN SANTANA never developed into a top-of-the-line starter, but he's become more consistent and settled in as a solid starter. Once a washed-out former prospect, JEROME WILLIAMS came back to the States from Taiwan and delivered three quality starts last September. He's not likely to have sustained success, but he does have the inside track for a rotation spot. Middling prospect GARRETT RICHARDS seems like the most likely candidate to step into the rotation in case of injury.
RELIEF PITCHING: JORDAN WALDEN will have the closer's role again entering the spring, but while he was overpowering he was also very shaky at times. He gave up seven runs over 2.2 innings in his last three appearances. RICH THOMPSON decided to lean on his cutter last year and the results were excellent. If Walden slips up, Thompson has to be in the closer conversation. LaTROY HAWKINS was solid with Milwaukee (2.42 ERA) and joins his ninth different team since 2003. He is expected to set up Walden as well. Lefty SCOTT DOWNS was far from dominant last year, despite his 1.34 ERA. But Scioscia does trust him in high-leverage situations, making him a possible fallback if Walden struggles. The Angels don't seem to have big plans for HISANORI TAKAHASHI, the most well-compensated long reliever in baseball.

*Orioles-Angels Preview* ========================


Baltimore (16-11) at Los Angeles (9-17), 10:05 p.m. EDT

Chris Tillman's first career win came against his hometown Los Angeles Angels, but he just missed out pitching in Anaheim for the first time last season.

The Baltimore Orioles right-hander will finally get that chance in Thursday night's series opener.

Acquired from Seattle in the 2008 Erik Bedard deal that brought Adam Jones to Baltimore, Tillman (1-1, 4.73 ERA) needed four career starts to earn his first major league victory, a 16-6 win over the Angels on Aug. 14, 2009.

The right-hander, a former standout at Fountain Valley High School - the same school Angels starter C.J. Wilson attended - nearly made his first professional start in Anaheim during the Orioles' second visit last season from July 5-8. Tillman, though, was sent down the day before that series after a one-day call-up resulted in him picking up a victory in Seattle in his first appearance of the season.

Tillman, who earned his first win of the season with six strong innings in Saturday's 7-3 victory over Oakland, will now try to help the Orioles (16-12) bounce back after dropping two of three in Seattle.

Baltimore, an 8-3 loser on Wednesday, is 1-3 since opening a season-high 11-game trip with three victories.

The Angels (10-17), meanwhile, are back in town after Wednesday's 5-4 victory over the A's ended a 2-5 trip and a four-game skid.

"A win's a win," right fielder Mark Trumbo said. "It was probably more of a nail-biter than we would have liked."

Angels manager Mike Scioscia likes what he's seeing from Trumbo, who could match a career high by homering in four straight.

"Trum is definitely finding his comfort level in the box," Scioscia said.

Trumbo's three homers led the Angels as they took seven of nine from the Orioles last season, but he's gone deep just once in 50 home at-bats.

The Angels, despite their struggles, have won six of their last eight in Anaheim. Continuing that run, and the staff's 22-inning scoreless streak at home against Baltimore, could be difficult with Joe Blanton (0-4, 7.09) taking the ball on Thursday. Los Angeles hasn't won any of his five starts after he surrendered all of the runs in Saturday's 3-2 loss at Seattle.

"Everything is just a little off right now," said Blanton, who walked a season-high four. "... It needs to be cleaned up."

Heading home might help former MVP Josh Hamilton find his hitting stroke, as he's batting .298 in Anaheim compared to .154 on the road. Hamilton, a .342 career hitter off Orioles pitching before going 0 for 4 in the winner-take-all wild-card loss to Baltimore on Oct. 5, has no hits and three strikeouts in six at-bats versus Tillman.

The only other active Angels with plate appearances against Tillman are Erick Aybar (0 for 3) and Brendan Harris (1 for 2).

Orioles leadoff hitter Nate McLouth, batting .417 (10 for 24) on the trip, is 3 for 15 with a homer off Blanton. Nick Markakis has twice as many hits against the right-hander in three fewer at-bats.

Third baseman Manny Machado might be an even tougher out. He's batting .419 (18 for 43) during a team-best 10-game hitting streak and homered and doubled in Wednesday's loss.

The Orioles have won two of 10 in Anaheim since 2011.
