Baltimore Orioles SP Brian Matusz will be in competition to earn a starting rotation spot this spring, according to manager Buck Showalter.

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.

Baltimore Orioles P T.J. McFarland is another option to make the start Thursday, May 23, and manager Buck Showalter seemed to indicate that McFarland was the favorite.
Fantasy Tip: Jake Arrieta is the other option, but he was demoted to the minors after a poor showing earlier this year. Plus, he has bad numbers against the Toronto Blue Jays. McFarland has pitched well out of the bullpen and deserves a shot in AL-only leagues if he gets the nod.
