Orioles have 11 pitchers for 1-game AL wild card
ARLINGTON, Texas -- Baltimore Orioles manager Buck Showalter has 10 relief pitchers to choose from in their win-or-go-home AL wild card game at Texas.
The Orioles' 25-man roster for Friday night's game includes seven right-handers and three left-handers behind lefty starter Joe Saunders, who has never won at Rangers Ballpark.
The wild card winner advances to play in the AL division series against the New York Yankees, and would host the first two games. The 25-man roster can be redone before then.
For the Rangers game, Baltimore had two catchers, six infielders, five outfielders and designated hitter Jim Thome.
