The Baltimore Orioles rotation is definitely not set in stone, according to Brittany Ghiroli, with only SP Chris Tillman considered a lock. SPs Zach Britton, Kevin Gausman and Brian Matusz will likely battle for the fifth starter job, and maybe more, if SPs Wei-Yin Chen, Miguel Gonzalez and Bud Norris falter. SP Steven Johnson is also considered to be in the mix.

Baltimore Orioles SP Brian Matusz will be in competition to earn a starting rotation spot this spring, according to manager Buck Showalter. Matusz was 2-1 with a 3.53 ERA and held lefties to a .168 average in relief last season. He has a 5.51 ERA in his career as a starter. SPs Chris Tillman, Wei-Yin Chen and Miguel Gonzalez appear to have locked down spots in the rotation, and SP Bud Norris will also likely be a starter. However, the O's have considered the idea of using Norris as their closer, too. Matusz will likely compete with SPs Zach Britton, Steven Johnson, T.J. McFarland and Kevin Gausman.
